How to Get Rid of Plantar Warts

What are Plantar Warts?

A plantar wart is a small noncancerous growth on the bottom of the foot. Plantar warts often develop where friction or pressure occurs, such as on the ball of the foot. Runners, hikers, hunters, sports enthusiasts all at one time or another have feet issues and plantar warts can be one of the most painful. The word plantar refers to the sole of the foot. Similar warts can occur on other areas of the body such as the hands. 

What causes a plantar wart?

Plantar warts are caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). They can be spread by person-to-person contact. Or you can develop one if you walk barefoot on moist surfaces infected with the virus, such as in a community pool area or in the gym, or locker room. Wearing proper footwear in such places can prevent them.

What are the symptoms of plantar warts?

Plantar warts cause a thick patch of skin on the bottom of the foot. The wart may have black dots on it. These dots are dried blood. The wart may cause pain or discomfort. You may also have trouble walking because of the pain.

Treatments for plantar warts?

Some plantar warts go away without any treatment. But for those that are painful or that don’t go away, several treatments are available. These include:

Cryotherapy.  Your healthcare provider puts liquid nitrogen on the wart with a cotton swab. This treatment can be painful.

Surgical removal. Your dermatologist gives you a shot to dull the pain and then surgically cuts the wart off. This is expensive and healing time is an issue because it is on the bottom of your foot.

Duct tape. One study shows a benefit by putting duct tape on the wart for 6 days. You then soak the wart and scrape it with an emery board. This is repeated until the wart is gone or for 2 months. Other studies show this does not work well to remove the wart.

Medicine. A variety of medicines can be put on or injected into the wart. But research is mixed on how well they work and it is painful.
