Treating Plantar Warts

Plantar warts are caused by a virus that infects the skin through tiny
scrapes or cuts. They usually form on the bottom of the feet. They are
commonly spread in public swimming pools, showers, locker rooms and
other places where people go barefoot. They can be painful but are easily
treated or sometimes go away on their own. Treatments include over-the-counter nremedies such as salicylic acid. If the wart does not respond to
home treatment, your doctor can apply liquid nitrogen to freeze and dissolve the wart. In some cases, minor surgery may be required.
