Do you have stubborn warts on the sole of your feet that won’t go away with any over-the-counter preparation?

Warts that appear on the sole of the foot are called plantar warts, and are caused by a virus that can invade the skin through small and sometimes invisible cuts and abrasions.  The virus thrives in warm, moist environments – making infection a common occurrence in communal locker rooms and pools. If left untreated, they can grow in circumference and can spread into clusters of several warts.

Although most warts are harmless, some can be painful depending on their location. Warts on the bottom of the foot can be more difficult to treat because many topical preparations are unable to penetrate the thick skin of the foot. Dr. Mendoza can remove the warts by a simple surgical procedure that is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Don’t put up with your plantar warts any longer, schedule your appointment today by clicking here or calling our office at 615-452-8899!
