Treatments and Prices

Most treatments aim to destroy the viral skin cells and bring about an immune response. Treatments options are salicylic acid based, cryotherapy or chemical based.

Salicylic acid

The popular at home self-treatments are mainly salicylic acid based such as Bazuka™ or Salactol™.
Salicylic acid alongside lactic acid, disrupts the viral cell function but can take months of regular treatment to work. These treatments can harm the surrounding skin so care is needed to only apply on the verruca.

This form of regular self treatment normally lasts for a maximum of 12 weeks only. It is not recommended for people with Diabetes or poor circulation such as Peripheral Arterial Disease.


Cryotherapy is the application of nitrous oxide or liquid nitrogen onto the lesion to destroy the viral skin cells. This form of treatment when carried out using modern equipment and training is the gold standard in Verrucae removal.

At the Oxford Verruca Clinic we use the newly launched Cryopen X which is designed to deliver nitrous oxide at -89°C. It also delivers the highly effective cryotherapy with pinpoint accuracy causing minimal pain during treatment and little blistering or discomfort post treatment.


Treatments are spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart and most verrucae respond within 2 to 4 treatment sessions.

Chemical based

Chemical based treatments are available at the pharmacy or in clinics. They include Formaldehyde, Glutaraldehyde or Silver Nitrate.
