Hi I have wart on my foot verruca vulgaris i used all kind of acids co2 nitrogen nothing helped this is a virus i need antival cream please tell which?
Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Virus: Verrucas are warts which grow on the soles of the feet. These are non-cancerous skin growths and are caused due to the human papilloma virus (hpv).

Due to the body weight, the verruca gets pushed into the foot and it looks flat on the sole of the feet. ...Read more

It can take 1 year after tx for the virus to clear your body. Until then, it could come back. ...Read more

There are other types of treatments, but in my experience, cryosurgery with liquid nitrogen is one of the best treatment. Please, keep in mind that the virus (hpv) which causes warts, is something you can not get rid of. Warts can return in an unpredictable frequency. If large in size, surgery maybe the only option. ...Read more
Abrade them: Verruca are viruses that lodge in your skin. There is no good antiviral that works, so the safest way is to irritate the verruca so your bodies immune system kicks in to fight them. That's why duct tape works. Topicals also burn the verruca but you need to continue until the microscopic cells are also killed. ...Read more
