Plantar Warts (Verruca Plantaris)

Warts can develop anywhere on the foot, but typically they appear on the bottom (plantar side) of the foot. Plantar warts, which are caused by the human papilloma virus, the same virus that causes warts on other parts of the body, commonly occur in children and adolescents. These warts grow deep into the skin, and can make walking or standing painful.

At Sole Therapy we can remove the overlying hyperkeratosis, rapidly and painlessly, with a scalpel. In many cases this treatment combined with Salicylic acid or Silver Nitrate or Cyrotherapy is best treatment to aid in the resolution of wart tissue.
