Take care of those pesky plantar warts – Receive the highest level of podiatric care in Colorado Springs
Here’s what you should know about getting board-certified Colorado Springs plantar warts treatment at Intermountain Foot & Ankle:
A plantar wart is basically a virus that affects the sole of the foot. Often, callus tissue will cover or surround the wart.
Most plantar warts will eventually go away without the need for medical intervention, but it can take months or years. However, plantar warts can be painful, especially when located on a part of the foot that bears a lot of weight while walking or standing. In such cases, the wart can be removed in a variety of ways to include:
- oral medications
The proper treatment will depend upon your lifestyle and the severity of the wart. Talk to your foot doctor about what course of treatment is best for you.
The American Podiatric Medical Association has valuable information about plantar warts at it’s website.
