Plantar Wart Removal
Wart is a broad term which encompasses many types of conditions, however the “plantar wart” is the kind which usually develops on the feet. The medical term for this condition is “verruca plantaris”.
Our Podiatrist Office at the Golla Center in Pittsburgh can help you remove your Plantar Warts.
Plantar warts can develop anywhere on your foot, however it’s extremely common to find them on the bottom of your feet.
These warts are noncancerous skin growths which typically are caused by a virus called HPV which infects the top layer of your skin. It’s important to note that this type of HPV isn’t the same as the type responsible for genital warts.
Plantar warts usually develop without causing pain. However, they may harden or increase in size and severity over time and therefore be the source of pain when you walk or stand in place for an extended time. If you have a weakened immune system, your plantar warts may continue to spread without treatment.
