Looking for Plantar Wart treatment? Let us help!
Plantar warts are a common complaint that we see as podiatrists, especially common in children. Often mistaken for a corn, a plantar wart is caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and is a benign lesion of the outer surfaces of the skin on the foot or toes. It can sometimes appear as a white, circular lesion with small black dots throughout.
Plantar warts can be tricky to treat as there is no “cure”. Given it is caused by a virus, your immune system is required to fight off the infection, so our treatments are aimed to trigger an immune response to eradicate the virus.
A plantar wart can sometimes cause pain with direct pressure from walking or from footwear. Given that plantar warts are a virus, they commonly present with more than one lesion, as they can spread.
