Verrucae are benign tumours that can occur any where on the skin, the Human Pappiloma virus is the organism that causes verrucae. They are contracted by contact with a contaminated surface e.g. swimming pool areas, changing rooms etc. Some people are more susceptible than others. Most infections clear without treatment within one to two years.
