Looks like a few verrucas to me

If it's itchy and dark it may actually be on the way out!

Can your body clear them without treatment?

Bazuka is useless IME.
Get some of the stuff that freezes it off.

Bazuka that verruca 😂

Verruca! They indeed sometimes go on their own when your body realised it’s there and fights the virus, can take years though.

I bazooked mine, be sure to file it well before reapplying.

Your body can clear them. Takes a while, as yours is a year old it's possible it might be going away by itself.

Verruca for sure.

We had this with DS for month after month. Tried bazuka...tried freezing stuff from doctor...

The thing that worked was putting duct tape on it and leaving it in the dark. Replace the duct tape every 2 or 3 days as it loses stickiness...but it will go. (Verruca by the way)

Another vote for verucca. The normal Bazuka gel is rubbish but the freeze spray works a treat.

Yes defo verruca. My mums a podiatrist and suggests tea tree oil and under occlusion (duct tape as pp said)

Sorrytodisturbyou0 Sat 14-Sep-19 22:58:25

I will give it a file tomorrow and then try the tea tree oil. As I’m about to undergo IVF I really want to minimise the amount of chemicals I put on / into my body. That said, the itching is driving me CRAZY!!

I spent 7 years trying every remedy suggested, including visiting a podiatrist at great expense.
Then I bought the freezy stuff and it was gone in 2 days.

Banana skin + duct tape
