"I had a number of consultations and treatments at Dr. Ranga clinic. He was always very helpful, approachable and professional. His staff were also very easy to deal with."

A wart or verruca is a little growth found usually on the hands or the feet. It looks like a cauliflower and a permanent hard blister. They are often caused by a viral infection and there are lots of different types of warts & verrucae. 
To eleminate warts and verrucae, it is a good idea to have them paired & frozen. Pairing exposes the base of the wart or verruca and freezing destroys the skin cells inside so they can’t enlarge or spread any further.  The roots of the wart are separated from the skin and  hopefully further growth will not be possible. In a  couple weeks the skin and wart will die off. The skin should then heal & return to normal.

In extreme cases or in the case of very stubborn warts/verrucae then Cantherone treatment is an option here at Carrigtwohill Dermatology Clinic. This involves a special medical grade chemical being applied topically to the skin.  This liquid involves painless application & produces blistering which leaves no permanent scars. Unfortunately warts and verrucae are caused by a virus which remains present in the body for life. It can remain dormant for many years, however it is possible for re-occurrence.
