Spring Into Action with Plantar Wart Treatment

Treating Plantar WartsDo you think you might have a wart on the bottom of your foot?  Plantar warts are common, and they can cause discomfort and even become painful if left untreated. Whether you have one or a cluster, we’re here to help you put the spring back in your step.

Plantar warts are found on the soles of the feet. They are caused by the human papillomavirus, also known as HPV, and are spread through direct contact. They are not typically painful, but they can cause discomfort if they are in a high-pressure area such as your feet. These growths are often found on the ball of the foot or on the heel.

Your feet are vital to everything you do, so take time to inspect them daily—including the soles. This condition is common in children, so parents should look at their children’s feet often. People with compromised immune systems may also be more susceptible to this common condition.

If you discover a wart, there are various treatment options available to get rid of it.  Dr. Hollander will help you determine the best option for you. To prevent your warts from spreading, keep them covered with a bandage until you can begin treatment. Remember not to touch them, and use good hygiene practices.

For information on plantar wart treatment, call Dr. John Hollander today at (707) 578-1222. You can also schedule an appointment at our Santa Rosa, CA office by requesting an appointment online. We want your feet to stay wart free so that you can feel confident and comfortable.
