Verrucas are a highly contagious viral lesion which infects the outer layer of the skin known as the epidermis. It cleverly mimics normal skin cells which makes it difficult for the body to detect which is why they can stay in situ for several years.
Verrucas are caught when the skin is compromised by a cut or scrape, and are usually spread in communal areas such as swimming pools, showers and athletic facilities. Verrucas tend to be more common in children than adults.
