Caption: Verruca removal. Close-up of the gloved hands of a nurse using a scalpel to remove the hard skin over a verruca on a patient's foot. This will be followed by applying liquid nitrogen (see C014/7762) to freeze and remove the verruca. A verruca (or plantar wart) is a rough area on the foot caused by a papillomavirus. It can be removed by cryosurgery (freezing), cutting out the infected area or applying salicylic acid plasters. Photographed in the UK at a wart clinic at a general practice (GP) surgery.
