Toads have them. Witches have them. And yes, even every day normal humans have them.
The most common form of warts on the feet are plantar warts. A plantar wart is actually a virus. It grows on the bottom of the foot. It is considered contagious and can be spread to other parts of the foot, to the opposite foot, even to other people. They are not usually painful unless they grow to a large size or are on a weight-bearing part of the foot.
It is best to treat warts as soon as they appear. The longer they are present, the more resistant they are to treatment and more likely they are to spread.
Warts can be removed using chemicals or by laser. Our office can perform either procedure. Lasers have the advantage of quicker healing times, less discomfort and precise removal to decrease the chance for scar tissue. Our podiatrist team can recommend which is best for you.
