How to Get Rid of a Painful Wart

How to Get Rid of a Painful Wart

Warts, blisters, and ingrown toenails — these may all seem like relatively minor issues until they show up in your feet. Given that plantar warts favor weight-bearing areas on the soles of your feet, it’s easy to understand how a wart can be so uncomfortable, making every other step a painful one.

If you’re struggling with a plantar wart, the good news is that the team of foot health experts here at Neuhaus Foot and Ankle offer several solutions, clearing the way forward for pain-free walking.

Seeking professional help

If you do an Internet search for wart removal, you’ll come up with scores of results, leaving you to sift through solutions that range from applying duct tape for several months to over-the-counter products that promise quick-and-easy removal.

Warts affect about 10% of the population worldwide, so it’s little wonder there are so many products and services that promise wart elimination.

While there may be some merit to a few of these products and services, the ones that work can take a considerable amount of time and effort. Frustratingly, after all the effort, the warts often reappear.

Seeking the help of experts like ourselves can help you cut through the clutter, eliminate the guesswork, and get straight to the business of removing the wart as quickly as possible.

We also want to point out that seeking professional help is especially essential if you have diabetes. The last thing you should be doing is trying to cure foot problems on your own, as it could lead to some very significant complications, such as infection.

Eliminating your painful wart

Once we examine your wart, we recommend a plan that will work best to eliminate the painful growth. Our treatment options include:

Clearly, we offer several effective solutions to eliminate plantar warts. In some cases, we use two treatments, such as cryotherapy to freeze the wart off followed by salicylic acid to ensure the skin remains wart-free.

Since we know how frustrating plantar warts can be, especially when they make walking painful, we choose the best treatment plan for your circumstances so you can move without pain.

For expert removal of your painful plantar warts, contact one of our offices in Hermitage, Brentwood, Nashville, Mount Juliet, Waverly, Smyrna, Gallatin, Columbia, Pulaski, Hendersonville, or Lebanon, Tennessee, to schedule a consultation.
