Plantar Wart On Heel Treatment
Daughter has a cryo treated plantar wart on her foot. Still very painful. What can be done for pain until the treatment heals? How long to heal?
Try ibuprofen: You can try ibuprofen and see if it helps. Can try putting a donut on the wart for comfort
Is blunt dissection a safe and effective treatment for a single fairly deep plantar wart (non-weight-bearing spot on foot)?
Possibly: Since warts are epidermal lesions, any treatment should be restricted to that level. Penetrating the dermis by any means creates scarring which could be painful post-treatment. While I treat most warts with canthradine, I do occasionally bluntly remove them under local anesthesia and gently treat the base with a co2 laser to prevent reoccurrence. These heal without suturing.See 5 more doctor answers
Warts...: Plantar warts are very frustrating to treat. Methods that worked in the past may not work for you in the present. Fortunately, there are many other treatments to try. There are a few different topical chemicals, different freezing techniques, etc. See a podiatrist for details. Treatment ranges from topical acids and debridements to excisional surgery.See 1 more doctor answer

I'm treating my plantar wart with aldara (imiquimod) and tagamet. It's much less tender now but hasn't diminished in size very much. Is the treatment working?
See your physician: These are powerful medications. Having less pain is a step in the right direction. Have you physician evaluate the area to compare it with how it was prior to treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: I've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding.See 2 more doctor answers

I received treatment, cryotherapy, to my plantar warts. One of my three warts became a blister and it's really painful! Can I soak my feet in epsom salt to alleviate the pain and reduce the swelling?
Forget: The epsom salt...just soak in hot (but not burning!!) water and call the Cryotherapist for exact advice ASAP! Hope this helps! Dr ZSee 2 more doctor answers
Warts: You can apply a topical antibiotic cream. Warts are caused by a virus so the cream only helps treat secondary infections. I would see a podiatrist for this problem. These are difficult to treat because the skin on the heel is very deep. The cutera laser is very effective for these warts. Also acid and freezing treatments work well but these need to be debrided and treated best done by podiatrist.See 1 more doctor answer
I have common warts on my heel and on my finger. My mom went to the store but there was only the medicated remover for plantar warts. Would it work?
Better than nothing.: Go ahead and give it a try. Just make sure that you follow the directions, and make sure you are treating a wart.See 1 more doctor answer
What do you advise if I had a plantar wart on my heel for 6 months, had it surgically removed nd hasn't healed. Pls advice wht to do?
See doctor: And find out why this has not healed. Is it that surgical site never healed or is it that wart is still there? Either way, this should be seen by a physician so the problem can be treated.See 3 more doctor answers
I had this thing on my foot above the heel for several weeks. Found out it was a Plantar Wart. How do I get rid of it??
Local destruction.: Turns out are hard to get rid of. Your doctor can freeze, burn, inject or even use a laser. Ultimately it takes a good immune reaction to the freezing or other treatment used by the doctor. We damage the tissue by freezing and your imune system then attacks the wart. See your doctor. The over the counter treatments don't work well for plantar warts. The skin on the foot is very thick.
