Plantar Wart Removal
Plantar warts can cause real frustration. If you are suffering from a Plantar Wart, our Chiropodist is trained to help.
What are plantar warts?
Plantar warts are small growths that appear on the bottom of your foot (heels) or other weight-bearing areas of your feet. This pressure on these growths may also cause plantar warts to grow inward beneath a hard, thick layer of skin (callus). Ouch!
Plantar warts are caused by HPV (Human papillomavirus). This virus can enter your body through tiny cuts, breaks or other weak spots often found on the bottom of your feet.
Although the majority of plantar warts cause no serious alarm, and can often go away without treatment, some plantar warts need the help of a doctor or chiropodist.
Commonly Asked Questions about Plantar Warts
Why do plantar warts appear?
Plantar warts are caused by an infection with HPV in the outer layer of skin on the soles of your feet. They develop when the virus enters your body through tiny cuts, breaks or other weak spots on the bottoms of your feet.
Do Plantar warts ever go away?
Most plantar warts are harmless and go away without treatment, though it may take a year or two. If your warts are painful or spreading, you may want to have them looked at.
What happens if you leave a plantar wart untreated?
If left untreated, plantar warts can grow up to 1 inch in circumference and may spread into clusters called mosaic warts. In severe cases, they can cause a change in gait or posture that results in leg or back pain–our job is to make sure that doesn't happen.
