Understanding Verrucas

What is a Verruca?

Verruca is a skin infection caused by The Human Papilloma Virus. Viruses are made up of complex proteins and invade the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis). It usually appears as a plaque of hard skin with an irregular border and can have black dots (blood vessels) scattered throughout. Verruca can be very painful and can appear on any part of the body.

It’s important to remember that verrucas and warts can take months or even years to disappear and the virus is contagious and can spread to others. 

Introducing Verrutop

What is Verrutop?

Verrutop is a new treatment in the UK and is a Class 2A Healthcare Product, exclusively administered by qualified medical professionals. 

It is a topical solution based on a unique combination of three organic acids, lactic, acetic, and oxalic, which are combined with copper and zinc salts plus nitric acid to produce “Nitric Zinc Complex”.

How does Verrutop work?

Verrutop is a topical solution crafted from a unique blend of three organic acids—lactic, acetic, and oxalic—combined with copper, zinc salts, and nitric acid to create the powerful “Nitric Zinc Complex.” This complex initiates two key processes: Desiccation and Denaturation.

Desiccation is a dehydration process that targets the HPV virus’s protein-based covering, causing breakdown and destruction, preventing viral replication.

Denaturation weakens the structure of DNA found in viral proteins, disrupting essential activities and leading to viral cell death.

How effective is Verrutop treatment?

An extensive study involving 200 patients with 766 verrucae showcased an impressive 89.3% clearance rate within just 6 treatment sessions.

Is Verrutop treatment painful?

In the majority of cases, the treatment is painless. Some patients may experience a slight tingling or burning sensation, typically short-term.

What can I expect if I have Verrutop treatment?

Verrutop is a safe topical treatment, but it should not be used on healthy skin, tumors, keloids, flat warts, children under 6, pregnant or breastfeeding women, patients with impaired circulation or sensation, or those already using other topical treatments or undergoing skin treatments.
