Those with smaller verruca who wish to eradicate them. Verrutop is most suitable for smaller verruca, and verruca/warts which are on non-weight bearing areas (on tops of the toes or feet). For larger/long standing or particularly stubborn verruca other treatment options may be indicated.
Firstly a podiatrist will perform a thorough examination and history taking with regards to the verruca, including any past treatments that have been tried and taking a full medical and social history taking.

Following this, the podiatrist will carefully apply the Verrutop treatment to the verruca/verrucas to be treated.
It is advised to apply surgical spirits twice daily to the verruca in between treatments which aids the drying out effect of the Verrutop. Treatments are performed every two weeks for a maximum six sessions.
The manufacturers of Verrutop currently state the proven efficacy of the treatment to be 90% with a maximum of six treatment sessions performed.
