Plantar Wart Treatment Options
Welcome to My Sports Podiatrist, your dedicated team for specialised podiatry care. We understand that foot health is crucial to your overall well-being and active lifestyle. One common foot ailment that affects many individuals is plantar warts, and we offer a range of effective treatment options to suit your needs.
What are Plantar Warts?
Plantar warts are growths that typically appear on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of your feet. Caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), these warts can cause discomfort, pain, and inconvenience in your daily activities.
Plantar Wart Treatment at My Sports Podiatrist
At My Sports Podiatrist, we provide comprehensive and personalized treatment options for plantar warts. Our aim is to relieve your discomfort and eradicate the wart, preventing recurrence and spread. Our treatment options include:
Cryotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that involves freezing the wart using liquid nitrogen. This process destroys the wart and stimulates your immune system to attack the virus. Cryotherapy is a quick, convenient option with minimal recovery time.
Acid therapy involves the application of a special medicated acid to the wart. Over time, this medication breaks down the wart structure and kills the virus. The dead skin is then gently removed, revealing healthy skin underneath.
For stubborn warts, we offer surgical excision or curettage. This treatment involves removing the wart with a surgical instrument. Local anesthesia is used to ensure patient comfort. This option is often considered when other treatments have not been successful.
