What Causes Verrucae?

A verruca is a virus which is picked up through physical contact with an area which has already been infected by somebody else with a verruca. The virus enters your skin via small breaks of splits in the skin. Verrucae are usually picked up in places where barefoot activity occurs, especially in places which are damp e.g. swimming pools, showers, etc. To prevent verrucae, we recommend wearing verruca socks or flip flops in communal areas.
