Not surprising.: Surgically removing warts, especially from the bottom of the foot, has a very questionable success rate. Don't be alarmed if you see warts returning. The other problem with wart removal on the bottom of the foot is the inevitable residual scar tissue at the incision sites. This scaring can sometimes worse than the original wart. Care must be taken when deciding the best treatment regimen.
