What are Warts and Verrucas

Warts are small lumps that develop on the skin, caused by a viral infection. Verrucas are a type of wart that affect the bottom of the feet. Most people will have warts at some point. They usually go away on their own, but it can take months or even years.

 

Preventing warts and verrucas

It's difficult to prevent warts and verrucas completely. The following can help stop them spreading:

  • avoid touching other people's warts – wash your hands after touching your own wart
  • avoid sharing towels, flannels, shoes and socks with other people
  • keep your feet and hands clean and dry
  • change your socks every day
  • don't go barefoot in public places
  • cover warts and verrucas with a waterproof plaster or a verruca sock when swimming
  • avoid scratching or picking at warts or verrucas – this may spread the infection to other parts of your body
  • take care when shaving because warts can spread if you cut yourself

When to see your GP

See your GP if:

you're not sure whether a lump is a wart pharmacy treatments haven't worked

you have a wart on your face or genitals – don't treat these yourself

you have lots of warts or get warts often

a wart bleeds, changes in appearance, spreads or causes significant pain, distress or embarrassment

If you have genital warts you should be treated at a sexual health or GUM clinic. This is so you can be checked for other infections (unless your GP is able to provide specialist sexual health services).
