Gross verrucas

My poor DS has what I think are mosaic verrucas, so clusters of many many verrucas. There are too many to count. I feel awful. We’ve not been consistent with treating them and they’ve spread over his feet like wildfire. More than I can count. He doesn’t want them frozen, to be honest I think there’s too many... any suggestions on Want to do?

Please see your Gp. Disclaimer I have no medical training whatsoever, but saw a programme a while back about a young girl whose many veruccas were a symptom of an underlying condition which required treatment. Hope your DS gets sorted soon.

My DS had mosaic verrucas for over 2 years - we tried every home treatment method possible but eventually went to the doctor (you can't usually get an appt for verrucas but he was struggling to walk). The doc was completely shocked as they were so bad and consulted to Google and called in a senior colleague. We were referred to have them frozen and I guess it took half a dozen sessions but his feet have been perfect ever since - I just wish we had taken that step sooner.

Thanks both. My ds sounds very similar that he’s had this and spreading for a long time, over a year. Will get GP appointment.

I've suffered with verrucae for decades. There's no real effective treatment. But there's often an underlying cause of immunity issues. Definitely see GP.

Also ask the GP to check your son's immune system as extreme and long lasting verrucas can be an indication of a different problem.

Pannalash i saw that programme. It was embarrassing bodies quite some years ago. I still remember how bad that poor girls feet were. I hope she made a full recovery.

I have had little veruccas (veruccae?!) on my feet for years. They aren’t very painful though - sometimes I have to remove the skin to ease the pressure.

They are small though.

I don’t have underlying immune issues though
