Plantar Warts Removal
PLANTAR WARTS REMOVAL
Have you ever noticed any small, fleshy, grainy growth under your foot or a callus over a well-defined “spot” on the skin? Or perhaps black pinpoints? Or maybe you have trouble walking or standing because of pain? Well, maybe that is because of plantar warts.
Plantar warts (Verruca Plantaris) are common warts that affect the bottom of the feet. Most people will have one at some point in their lives. They are small growths that usually appear on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of your feet. This pressure may also cause plantar warts to grow inward beneath a hard, thick layer of skin (callus).
TYPES OF PLANTAR WARTS
- A solitary wart is a single wart. It often increases in size and may eventually multiply, forming additional satellite warts.
- Mosaic warts are a cluster of several small warts growing closely together in one area. Mosaic warts are more difficult to treat than solitary warts.
Plantar warts are caused by direct contact with the human papilloma virus (HPV).
HPV infection is a viral infection that commonly causes skin or mucous membrane growths (warts). There are more than 100 varieties of human papillomavirus (HPV). Some types of HPV infection cause warts, and some can cause different types of cancer. Still, don’t be alarmed because most HPV infections don’t cause cancer.
HPV thrives in warm, moist places, such as locker room floors and around swimming pools. Those little puddles on the surface of pool tiles are a breeding ground for HPV.
The virus is transmitted by direct contact and may be picked up more easily if you have an opening or crack in your skin.
TRANSMISSION OF THE VIRUS
Each person's immune system responds differently to HPV. Not everyone who comes in contact with it develops warts. Even people in the same family react to the virus differently.
The HPV strains that cause plantar warts aren't highly contagious. So the virus isn't easily transmitted by direct contact from one person to another. But it thrives in warm, moist environments. Consequently, you may contract the virus by walking barefoot around swimming pools or locker rooms. If the virus spreads from the first site of infection, more warts may appear.
- Thickened skin. A plantar wart often resembles a callus because of its tough, thick tissue.
- Pain. Walking and standing may be painful. Squeezing the sides of the wart may also cause pain. When plantar warts cause pain, you may alter your normal posture or gait — perhaps without realizing it. Eventually, this change in how you stand, walk or run can cause muscle or joint discomfort.
- Tiny black dots. These often appear on the surface of the wart. The dots are actually dried blood contained in the capillaries (tiny blood vessels). Plantar warts grow deep into the skin. Usually, this growth occurs slowly with the wart starting small and becoming larger over time.
Anyone can be at risk with plantar warts and the following are most likely to get infected:
- Children and teenagers
- People with low immune system
- People who had acquired plantar warts before
- People who walk barefoot especially in HPV-prone areas
To reduce your risk of plantar warts:
- Avoid direct contact with warts. This includes your own warts. Wash your hands carefully after touching a wart.
- Keep your feet clean and dry. Change your shoes and socks daily.
- Avoid walking barefoot around swimming pools and locker rooms.
- Don't pick at or scratch warts.
- Don't use the same emery board, pumice stone or nail clipper on your warts as you use on your healthy skin and nails.
There are plenty of ways in treating plantar warts. You can make use of home remedies or medical surgeries if the warts have become more serious.
1. DIY Treatments
a. Duct tape
b. Salicylic acid
c. Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil has been historically used as a topical antiseptic. It’s primarily used for fungal infections, wounds, and acne. While not widely studied, tea tree oil may also work for plantar warts.
NOTE: Although these remedies are readily available at home or easy to avail on groceries or drugstores, results may still vary. Some of these methods may cause marks, scars or skin allergies so proceed at your own risks.
2. Medical Procedures
a. Freezing medicine (cryotherapy)
Cryotherapy done at a doctor's office involves applying liquid nitrogen to the wart, either with a spray or a cotton swab. This method can be painful, so your doctor may numb the area first.
The chemical causes a blister to form around your wart, and the dead tissue sloughs off within a week or so. Cryotherapy may also stimulate your immune system to fight viral warts. You may need to return to the doctor's office for repeat treatments every two to four weeks until the wart disappears. This method can be quite expensive since you have to return to your doctor for follow-up removal sessions.
b. Minor surgery
Your doctor cuts away the wart or destroys it by using an electric needle (electrodesiccation and curettage). This procedure can be painful, so your doctor will numb your skin first. Because surgery has a risk of scarring, this method usually isn't used to treat plantar warts unless other treatments have failed.
c. Laser treatment
Pulsed-dye laser treatment burns closed (cauterizes) tiny blood vessels. The infected tissue eventually dies, and the wart falls off. This method requires repeat treatments every three to four weeks. The evidence for the effectiveness of this method is limited, and it can cause pain and potentially scarring.
