A verucca (or wart) is a fungal infection of the skin, usually found on the fingers and toes. The cause of this skin condition in most cases is human papilloma virus (HPV), which affects the skin, leading to warts. They might be different shape and appear with different symptoms, and therefore there are remedies made to treat every form of warts. There are also veneral warts, caused by irritating secretion and senile warts (skin changes caused by aging). Verucca could be quite hard to stop, once it starts to spread. The condition might also become really painful for the patient.
Some suggest that the best treatment actually includes salt bath (Epsom salt baths are recommended), to make your skin more acid and cleaning of the affected area with some cider vinegar.
Conventional medicine offers a surgical removal of the warts as the only solution. Patients that tried natural or homeopathic remedies are usually satisfied with the results of the treatment.
Filthy and too alkaline skin is the playground for the fungi. Keep your feet clean and tidy, changing your socks two times a day and often changing your shoes. Doctors also recommend avoiding rubber soled shoes, because they might prevent the proper perspiration of the feet.
