*IF* it's a wart.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: I've seen them do more harm than good.

Can a plantars wart (on the bottom, outside part of the foot) cause foot, ankle and calf swelling and pain? Or is it likely 2 separate issues?
Not directly related: These are likely separate issues. A plantar wart can create pain, resulting in a change in your gait (how you walk) and thus put more pressure on other areas of your leg. Thus, it's theoretically possible these two issues are INDIRECTLY related. However, foot/ankle/calf swelling and pain without an injury make me think about a potential blood clot. Please seek help from a physician if persistent. ...Read more

I have 3 warts on my leg and 3 warts under my balls. What is this? What could it be? Please let me know.
Probably no worries: First, see a health professional. Self diagnosis of warts (or any other skin condition) often is wrong. A number of other skin anomalies can look like warts to the untrained eye. Second, even if they are warts, probably no big deal. But I suspect they aren't sexually acquired genital warts, which typically involve the genitals directly (penis, etc) and rarely appear only on the scrotum or thighs. ...Read more

Tough Problem: As common as warts are, they can be excessively difficult to clear. Often, as a dermatologist, we move through the different treatment options until we find the one that finally works. There are dozens of ways to treat warts, some common and some very unique. One very effective method is candida antigen therapy. See your dermatologist for a different option. ...Read more
