Here's some information on the treatment of verrucae:

* Over the counter products containing salicylic acid may be of benefit in treating the verrucae. However, it is important that application of these products is confined to the affected area only as it may lead to the damage of healthy skin. Diabetics or patients with a poor circulation should not use these products.
* Try to keep the wound covered at all times as it will prevent the wart from growing rapidly and spreading to other areas.
* You can also remove the surrounding callus with a pumice stone.
* It is recommended that you seek advice from a chiropodist.

I worked in a hospital laboratory as a medical technologist for more than 33 years and I can't believe I had never heard of verucae. DAMN! They sound disgusting. Barf!

Yeah. I thought Veruca was the name of a character from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". It is, actually--Google thinks the skin thingy is spelled with two rs.
