Dr Greg
Over-the-counter medications contain chemicals that destroy skin cells (e.g., acid) and may damage healthy tissue surrounding the wart. Self-treatment for plantar warts using an over-the-counter preparation is not recommended.In some cases, podiatrists apply mild acid (e.g., salicylic acid, cantharidin, dichloroacetic acid) topically to treat plantar warts. This treatment, which often requires multiple applications over the course of several weeks, disintegrates viral cells and allows healthy skin cells to replace them. Laser is a much faster way to treat plantar warts.

How long does it take to remove plantar warts?

I have had this one plantar wart on my foot for 5 months. I have been treating it everyday with Dr. Scholl’s stuff and it seems to not get any bigger but it also never seems to go away. I try to dig out the wart, but it hurts like hell when i do that and it just never seems to go away. Is there another way to treat this and if there is how long will it take?
Dr Greg said
just a few minutes, anesthesia will be injected locally, and it will be destroyed by laser.

How can I remove Plantar warts?

My son has Plantar warts, and not sure if I should have them removed or can they be treated to get them removed. Is there anything that will make them go away without getting them removed by the Doctor.

Laser is the fasest and easiest way to treat plantar warts.
