About Plantar Warts

Plantar warts are small, grainy growths resembling a callus that typically occur on the bottom of your feet. These are caused through direct contact with a virus that commonly occurs in the environment, which enters your feet through small cuts or breaks in the skin and results in this unpleasant and contagious condition. To not only treat and but also contain the spread of your plantar warts, it is crucial to contact your local podiatrists at Ankle & Foot Centers of America as soon as possible.

Plantar Warts

Plantar warts appear as single lesions or multiple lesions in varying colors, sizes and overall texture, depending on the severity of the case. They can cause serious pain while walking and will generally increase in size as time goes by. These warts are also highly contagious and can easily spread through skin contact between individuals, including family members, as well as walking barefoot in your own home’s bathroom and/or shower, public pools, and other similar areas.

Unfortunately, plantar warts are very difficult to treat and fully eliminate. The lesions occur on the outer layer of your skin, meaning that your immune system remains unaware of the foreign presence and thus does not implement a natural response to combat the virus.

To ensure that your warts are not left untreated, your podiatrist will implement one of today’s common treatment options. These include topical or oral treatments (prescription ointments or pills), cryotherapy (freezing), debriding the debriding the wart (removing the affected skin), laser therapy, as well as surgery.

Another popular treatment is a home remedy, involving the placement of duct tape onto the warts to stimulate your immune system. Theoretically, the adhesive in the tape causes a skin irritation that reaches deeper below the surface to eradicate the wart through an immune response.

Seeking Treatment for Plantar Warts

Our team of podiatrists specialize in the treatment and removal of plantar warts. We can assess your situation and discuss your options to ensure that your distinct case receives the treatment that it needs. That way, you are almost guaranteed to be rid of the warts once and for all.

I've posted a review a few times and can't seem to find them! Dr. Monaco is by far the best podiatrist there is! I had been seeing another podiatrist in Columbus, who'd done 3 surgeries, all 3 messing my foot up worse, with the 3rd one leaving my first and second toes in the shape of a peace sign! I was constantly told by the previous podiatrist that everything was fine and lined up the way it was supposed to be. I had my first surgery with Dr. Monaco in August and it was the best decision I've made! She is by far the best! Truly compassionate about what she does! Very knowledgeable! Truly cares about her patients! If you're in need of a podiatrist give Dr. Monaco q call! ❤️

I was very impressed with Dr. Monaco this was my first visit. All the office staff was so nice as well as my nurse. I had came to Dr Monaco after being very unhappy with the prior Dr I had seen for my ankle injury. Dr. Monaco was very through with her exam and I think I finally got a good idea of what my issue is. Although I do need some further imaging test. Overall I am so glad I decided to see her, I didn't feel rushed at all and she answered all my questions. I'm sure I will have several more visits with her and overall I am well pleased. I highly recommend her to anyone who's having any foot or ankle issues.
