How to get rid of plantar warts? Might also be molluscum. No money to see dermatologist

How can I be sure it's plantar warts when I've never had them before? And to be honest, can't afford to go to doc.

Never too sure....: There is no way to be absolutely sure. Warts can be missed by the most seasoned physician. In general warts are found on weight bearing areas of the foot. Pushing on a wart usually does not hurt but squeezing on a wart hurts. Left untreated, warts may begin as one and then form clusters. Warts do generally occur on 45 year old adults. A good picture and Healthtap concierge may be best for you. ...Read more

The liver can sometimes be affected by these medications, so monitoring of liver enzymes is advisable. Be prepared for 12 weeks of treatment and slow resolution as the nail takes time to grow out healthy. ...Read more
