What are verrucas and warts?
Verrucas and warts are small lumps that form on the skin and are a very common skin complaint that most people will experience at some point in their lives. Both warts and verrucas are usually harmless but can be unsightly or cause slight discomfort.
Verrucas (also known as plantar warts) are small warts that occur on the soles of the feet. They are caused by a contagious infection known as human papilloma virus (HPV) which causes the skin to over-grow and thicken creating a growth. Verrucas often grow on the weightbearing areas of the foot and can vary in size, from a few millimetres to more than a centimetre. They have a rough appearance with small black dots in the centre and can cause some discomfort when weight is placed upon them.
Warts are small lumps of tougher skin that often develop on the hands and feet. They can vary in appearance and may appear individually or in clusters. They are non-cancerous, but can resemble certain types of cancers so it can be important to get them checked by a doctor if you are unsure. Warts tend to affect children and teenagers more than adults. Common warts are firm to touch and usually are round or oval shaped. The surface is usually rough and irregular - similar to the texture of a cauliflower and they tend to develop on the knuckles, fingers and knees.
What causes verrucas and warts?
Both verrucas and warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) which is contagious and spreads from contaminated surfaces or through close skin contact. It’s common to catch them in places such as communal showers, changing rooms and floors around swimming pools.
You can prevent catching warts and verrucas by:
Washing your hands after touching a wart or verruca
Change your socks daily if you have a verruca
Cover warts and verrucas with a plaster when swimming
Take care not to cut a wart when shaving
Avoid sharing towels, flannels, socks or shoes if you have a wart or verruca
Do not bite your nails or touch your mouth if your fingers have warts
Do not walk barefoot in public places if you have a verruca
Avoid scratching or picking a wart
How does Carnation Cyrospray work?
Carnation Cyrospray works by rapidly freezing the verruca or wart. This form of treatment is known as cryotherapy. It is a very common removal method for verrucas and warts. After the verruca or wart has been treated with the Cyrospray it can disappear or fall off to leave you with clear skin. Just one application of Carnation Cyrospray can be sufficient to cause the verruca and wart to disappear or fall off the skin within 10-14 days. Persistent verrucas or warts may require 2 or 3 applications. Each spray bottle contains 12 applications.
