Scholl foot science.
Common warts have a raised "cauliflower-like" appearance and can occur anywhere on the body, including fingers, the backs of hands, on the knees and on the face. They are skin coloured, hard and rough.
Verrucas are more flattened, have hard outer edges and often have small black spots in the centre. They can occur on the ball of the foot, the bottoms of the toes, or on the heel.
A single treatment may be sufficient, however, for verruca’s additional applications may be required.
Not suitable for use on children under the age of 4. Always read the instructions

What are verrucas
Verrucas are common viral infections that appear as small hard areas on the skin. The same colour as your skin, the most common type are rough and often wrinkled. If they're on the sole of the foot, they can be softer and flat, with small black spots inside. These can be painful because of the pressure put on them by the weight of your body.
What causes verrucas
Infection occurs through contact, especially in popular locations such as swimming pools, communal showers, changing rooms and gyms, where the warm and moist environment helps the virus to develop.
How to prevent verrucas
You can help prevent verrucas by avoiding walking barefoot in damp, crowded places, and by wearing pool slippers or flipflops. Wearing socks that can absorb sweat can also help. If a verruca has already formed, they can be treated easily at home.

Initially went for Bazuka, as that's what I'd used as a child. It did cause the circle around the verruca to go white and peel off, which seemed to peel off the verruca itself, leaving just a white patch where it was - but it came straight back within days. Kept trying for weeks, tried to be more diligent with the applications (not skipping any), but no results.
Then tried Scholl foot pen, which is a white pen that you use to dot gel on the affected area. This had the same effects as Bazuka. Used for several months, caused foot to be quite tender / painful on application sometimes, so was hopeful that this meant it was working. But again, it would peel off leaving a white patch and then instantly come back. This happened several times.
Hopelessly I kept googling and thought I might have to resort to private treatment, not feeling like I should trouble my GP with this at the moment. I put it down to how long I'd left it to treat it, thinking only professional treatment could help it now.
My husband actually ordered this Scholl freeze kit after I was whining about what to do next - I'd seen this product before but previously discounted it as I thought it sounded a) gimmicky and b) painful and c) was a bit pricey and I didn't want to keep sinking money into things that don't have a guarantee of working. But he went ahead and ordered it so I would stop going on about it.
Holy smokes. One application, waited 14 days as prescribed in the instructions, and bam... It. Is. Gone!
I read about the application itself a few times; it requires precise timing with a stopwatch app, and concentration. But overall took just a couple of minutes to read and carry out the necessary steps. For me, the application was painless except for the last five seconds where it did begin to lightly sting. After that, it was a case of putting on my socks and going about life for the next two weeks, letting it do its work.
After a day, the area where the verucca had been turned deep red / black, as if it were bruised under the skin. The instructions say not to pick at it, so I left it. It ended up looking like a had a small mole on the bottom of my foot. I continued to resist poking around and waited 14 days.
On the 14th day, I looked closer, wondering if I should repeat the treatment as suggested in the instructions. But I saw that it was coming away. I gently pulled at it and the whole thing came away, revealing fresh pink skin underneath where the verruca used to be. I couldn't believe it. I am buzzing. I can't stop looking at how peachy the sole of my foot is. It worked completely.
Obviously with things like this, what works for some might not work for others, we're all different. This treatment worked for me after trying some others unsuccessfully, it could be that some people try this and find that it's not for them. But I thought it might help others to know that sometimes things don't work, but there still might be something else out there.
Also helpful to know that someone can have one for ages, and it can still be beaten!
Don't lose heart :)
I can't say my son enjoyed it and hated the application part as it's a 'freezing' process but it's only 40 seconds (from memory) and it worked.
Please click 'helpful' if this helped you, it makes the time writing them worthwhile, thank you ☺
