Q What happens if you don't treat a wart?
Don't leave a plantar wart untreated
Ignoring a plantar wart or leaving it untreated can allow it to grow larger and possibly cause other warts to develop as well. As a wart becomes larger it can cause you significant pain, make it difficult to walk depending on where it is located on your foot. Ignoring a plantar wart can also make it much more difficult to treat. Plantar warts can alter the way you walk, which could put undue stress or strain on your muscles and joints. They can also get infected if you have an underlying condition, such as diabetes, which makes you more prone to infection.
Plantar warts are a very common foot problem that can be unsightly, embarrassing, and frustrating to treat.
