They are not usually harmful.  There is no need to treat warts if they are not causing you any problems. Without treatment, about 3 in 10 warts have gone within 10 weeks, and most warts will have gone within 1-2 years, and leave no scar.   Clinicians at Bottisham Medical Practice do not usually treat verrucas but are happy to provide advice if required.  Alternatively, please see: http://www.patient.co.uk/health/warts-and-verrucas for further information.
