Verrutop is a treatment used for eradicating warts and verruca. It is a topical treatment which is applied directly to the verruca. It uses a Nitrizinc complex to mummify the tissues and clear the verruca virus and associated lesions.
Those with verruca or warts which are smaller or more recently occured. It works particularly well for raised warts on tops of the toes and feet. For larger/more stubborn or long-standing verruca or warts, the practitioner may recommend a different treatment will be of more benefit.
Following a thorough history taking and examination from the podiatrist, if a verruca or wart is diagnosed and Verrutop is indicated as a treatment option, then treatment can commence. Initially, the verruca/wart is reduced with a scalpel and any overlying tissue is removed. After this, the Verrutop treatment is applied directly to the lesion. You can continue with activities as usual following the treatment. The treatment is carried out every 1-2 weeks for a maximum of 6 sessions.
The manufacturer of Verrutop states that the efficacy of the treatment is 90% with 3-6 treatments being carried out.
The main benefits of Verrutop are a reduction in size and usually complete eradication of the verruca after six treatments. Verrutop is usually painless although in rare cases it can sting slightly. There is no need for any paddings or dressings to be kept in place and dry for a period of time like with conventional acids used to treat verruca.
