PLANTAR WARTS

 

Plantar warts are unsightly, rough lesions that are generally found on the soles of the feet.  Human papilloma virus, which causes this condition, enters the skin through pressure points and injuries to the feet.  These contagious warts can develop in small groups or individually.

 

TREATMENT OF PLANTAR WARTS

 

Several treatments may be considered to deal with plantar warts effectively, including localized injections of drugs, acid or liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy), laser cauterization or specific products designed to treat the condition.

 

If plantar warts resist initial treatment, the podiatrist will recommend surgical removal.  Whatever your condition, your podiatrist will help you to choose the most appropriate method to suit your needs.

 

Feel free to request a consultation.
