It may help: The formulation of the topical preparation seems to be very important. It is one of the conservative approaches to plantar fibromatosis. You may want to look at the pdlabs.Net website where they have i nformation on studies and success rates. They also explain the mechanism of action.

Yes: But it may take several months.

Actually it takes several months for pain to reduce and up to a year to shrink
