Plantar Wart Treatment
Request An Appointment
Your skin is prone to warts, especially if you have cuts or scratches on your feet. A plantar wart is a wart that appears on the bottom of your foot. Plantar warts are usually not painful, but they can be bothersome and unsightly. There are many over-the-counter treatments for plantar warts, but these may not be as effective. When you choose us, we can assure you of the best plantar wart treatment.
What Really Causes Warts?
The human papillomavirus (HPV) causes warts. The virus can enter your body through cuts or scratches on your skin. Your skin provides the perfect environment for the virus to grow. The virus is contagious and can be spread to other parts of your body or to other people.
At one point or another, you may have warts on your hands, feet, or other parts of your body. Warts are usually harmless, but they can be painful and unsightly.
Plantar Wart Treatment Options
There are various ways to remove plantar warts. One is by freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen. Another is by burning the wart with an electrical current. One of the methods that we commonly use is the salicylic acid treatment.
Salicylic Acid Treatment
This treatment involves the application of a medicated patch or ointment on the wart. The salicylic acid will cause the wart to peel off. This treatment may take several weeks to work. It is important to follow the instructions on how to use the medication. If you use too much, it can damage your skin. If you use too little, it will not be effective.
