What Are Plantar Wart Treatments?

Q:
What are plantar wart treatments?

A:
Plantar warts are small growths caused by HPV. They usually appear on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of your feet. Most plantar warts aren’t a serious health concern and usually disappear on their own. However, it will take a month or more. So, here are some possible plantar wart treatments.

Salicylic acid cream, a topical cream that can “burn” off the wart
Liquid nitrogen, which can be used to “freeze” off the wart
Curettage, which involves cutting out the wart
Medicine applied directly to the wart
Laser therapy to burn off the blood vessels that feed the wart
Alternative treatments, such as essential oils

If your wart is deep or if it reoccurs, please go to your doctor.
