What are Plantar Warts Symptoms?
Plantar warts are skin growths that may develop on the sole. The growths are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), which enters the body through small cuts or other breaks in the skin located on the bottom of the foot. These growths are noncancerous formations and are transferred from person to person directly or indirectly. Plantar warts are small but can grow large in some cases.
Depending on the location of the plantar wart, it can become painful and bothersome. Transmission of the wart usually occurs by walking barefoot in public places and sharing shoes or socks with someone infected. A thorough examination by our podiatry foot specialist will help determine the extent of the condition. Symptoms of plantar warts may include:
- Hard and flat
- Rough surface
- Gray/brown surface with black point
- Sharp burning pain
Plantar warts usually go away on their own, but if foot pain persists, a podiatrist should be consulted.
Treatment of Plantar Warts
Treatment should be performed by a skilled podiatrist. Dr. Casteel and her team will ensure you have the right diagnosis and have the correct treatment options. Diabetics should not use over-the-counter treatments for plantar warts, due to the damage to healthy tissue that can occur. Nonsurgical methods for treating plantar warts may consist of:
- Changing shoes
- Supports or inserts
If the plantar wart is not responding to treatment, our podiatry specialist may recommend removing them surgically or laser cautery.
