When dealing with stubborn plantar warts, you must be patient and diligent with treatment. If over-the-counter medicines are failing to work, talk to Dr. Danciger about other treatment options. One effective treatment method is the use of a medication with salicylic acid. The medicine is applied twice a day and then deadened skin is smoothed away with a file or pumice stone. This method can still take several months until the wart is completely gone.
If your wart is more resilient, surgery, in which Dr. Danciger cuts around the wart, may be required to fully get rid of it. This would require local anesthesia and could cause some scarring.
Warts can be embarrassing and painful but they need to be treated so they don’t spread and multiply. Contact Dr. Danciger today to find the most effective way to treat your warts. Call our podiatric office at (760) 568-0108 or make an appointment directly from our homepage.
