Plantar Warts are those unsightly bumps and skin growth found on the sole of your foot caused by a viral infection known as the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Although not an overly serious health condition, it is contagious and can easily be spread to other people if proper care isn’t taken to clear it up.
With over 25 years industry expertise, our family owned podiatry practice can provide you with a detailed diagnosis and get your plantar warts treated with minimal downtime and discomfort.
What Causes Plantar Warts?
The HPV virus is transmitted via skin-to-skin contact with a person who has the virus or through cross contamination in communal / public areas.
For example: showering at a gym without adequate footwear, public swimming pools, saunas, spas or simply sharing socks / footwear with an infected person are common ways of catching plantar warts.

We debride away the excess skin and then apply a gentle silver nitrate topical solution to dissolve away the wart tissue.
This is applied to directly to the wart as a thick paste formulation after debridement. Several treatments are recommended for best results.
Liquid nitrogen (freezing solution) is applied to the lesion. This may cause blistering in some patients but improves within a few days. Another session is recommended a few weeks after the first treatment to resolve the issue.
