I am needing the best treatment for plantar fibromatosis. I work 12 hr. Shifts in a hospital as a cna/tech/pca, I have seen 2 podiatrists and am trying to figure out the best treatment plan. At first i was told transdermal verapamil 15% gel but then found
Plantar : Plantar fibromatosis is a difficult problem to treat. Fortunately, most people with this don't have symptoms. We're not really sure why some people get this, but it seems to be associated with trauma to the area, and, in some cases, patients on Phenytoin (dilantin) can develop lesions. Those with systemic conditions such as epilepsy, alcoholism, liver cirrhosis, hypothyroidism and diabetes mellitus may have an increased incidence of plantar fibromas.

Can you take CCB such as verapamil or diltazem and bystolic concurrently. Any contradiction or risk? Thanks for your help.
Verapamil: Intralesional verapamil injections are often used in the office for difficult to manage peyronie's plaques. The therapy requires weekly injections for at least six weeks. Between 25-35% of patients will find some relaxation of their plaques and some straightening of the penis over time. Having said this, is not a great therapeutic option. It is one of the few non-surgical options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
