    Does anyone have any thoughts on doing needling for verruca on pregnant women. Theoretically we are introducing the virus deeper into the body . Does anyone here regularly do needling on pregnant women who can give an opinion?

    Hi Hill,
    I havent (knowingly) needled anyone who is pregnant, purely because I have (anecdotally) seen lesions spontaneously resolve post-partem. So, my reasoning is: why perform a procedure that requires a local anaesthetic - when there is a possible increased chance of it resolving without intervention.
