Treating plantar warts can be difficult at times and thats why you should visit a podiatrist when you need treatment for them. Dr. Marco Vargas has many years of experience treating plantar warts. The most effective treatment methods consist of removing or killing the source of the wart.
Plantar warts are caused by a virus that penetrates the skin through cracks or cuts. They can develop as a hard callus like bumps on the side and bottom of the foot. Depending on the severity of your wart, Dr. Vargas may consider the following treatment options:
- Prescription creams can be given to attack the virus
- Freezing or drying to remove the source
- Surgery to remove the source of the wart
If you have a plantar wart, come in and get it evaluated. Not all warts require treatment, however it is important to get your wart evaluated by a professional.
