Verrucae pedis is a skin infection caused by The Human Papilloma Virus. The virus invades the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) and causes visible lesions to appear on the skin. Verruca usually appear as a plaque of hard skin, with an irregular border and can have black dots (blood vessels) scattered throughout. They can be on the soles of the feet or on the toes. It is important to remember that the virus is contagious and can be spread.
