Plantar warts are most common over the ball and ridge of your foot - the front pressure pads of your feet.
All the above wart treatments are more effective if combined with shaving down the dead skin above warts between treatments to reach the deeper infected tissue. This site complies with the HONcode standard for trustworthy health information: verify here. This patient is a twenty year old female who developed a Plantar wart on her heel, she ignored it and over the next 10 months or so it spread and eventually she developed a plantar wart on the other heel. She visited us and complained of pain walking, she had previously tried over the counter pastes on it with no change in her plantar wart, she also went to her General Practitioner and hade her plantar wart frozen with liquid nitrogen on two occasions again it made no difference to her plantar wart. Plantar warts are caused by the HPV (Human Papaloma Virus) the skin is inoculated through minute breaks in the skin known as micro trauma this allows the virus in where it multiplies causing the plantar wart, over time the plantar wart grows in size and spreads. This virus likes thick callused hairless skin such as foot soles, the underside of your toes and finger tips. Application of duct tape continuously for a couple weeks is a simple plantar wart remedy from home.


Similar to accutane used for acne, these topicals irritate the skin making it hostile to HPV. These oils or compounds typically use naturally occurring astringents to alter wart conditions to unfavorable for HPV. We find treatments such as Liquid Nitrogen are very ineffective in the treatment of warts on the sole of the foot, acids and pastes also don’t work terribly well.
The virus, human papillomavirus, affects only the upper layer of the skin and give rise to corn like growth which if subjected to stress can become soft. We have found to date the best form of treatment is surgical removal however we are now using Laser which is less painful during recovery and also has better results. There was some minor scarring as this patient is prone to develop Keloid scarring but apart from this no problems.
There are about 120 kinds of virus present out of which few are responsible for these warts. Many people's immune system can clear warts within a year without any help but some people find it very difficult to do so.


These viruses gain admittance to the skin directly and are contaminated from other infected persons may be from communal bath. Some people keep their wart covered with duct tape or adhesive tape to try to make it go away.
If your wart is painful or does not go away, you may need to receive treatments from our doctor.
The warts are located on the bony parts like ball of the foot or in the heels which receives the total pressure of the body.
