Evaluation in a specialized wound center is helpful - sometimes there's an element of infection present that can be treated. Good wound care and debridement is important. Cilostazol helps some people. I assume you're anemic and that should be corrected if possible. ...Read more

NO: Why Benadryl? Why topical antibiotic? Which antibiotic? A foot wart will not result in amputation or severe "complications" if treated or not. This question makes no sense. What does your Dr say? Have you seen a dermatologist? Many "warts" are actually something else. Most topical antibiotics are useless and often harmful. ...Read more
