Verrucas and warts – Many of us have suffered from them, and they are often the cause of much embarrassment, anxiety and lack of confidence.
There are however, some simple measures you can take to greatly reduce your chances of contracting them. If you play sports or use the gym or swimming pool, use flip flops when you enter the changing room, shower area or pool area, as these wet areas can be a breeding ground for verrucas.
It has been said that they will eventually go away by themselves in a couple of years, but if you cannot wait that long seek professional help. Over the counter products can work, but they are generally not as strong as the professional treatment. Verrucas are not dangerous, but are notoriously persistent, and can sometimes last for decades.
