Tips For Quick Removal of Plantar Warts

Mar 20, 2008
There are actually many of ways to remove warts, but when it comes to plantar warts, it's going to be quite difficult. Removal of plantar warts is a challenge, as they can be truly stubborn. Unlike facial warts, they grow inward and under the skin. They can be extremely painful when you walk. More than likely you see them fully grown before you can actually start treatment to remove them. Moreover, some treatments cannot truly guarantee that they will not come back.

Remember, the goal in any removal method of warts is not to just rid the wart off your foot but also kill the virus that causes it. Here are a few quick ways on how to remove plantar warts:

The first treatment I would like to discuss is laser surgery. This treatment involves a high intensity laser light that is carefully directed on the affected area to destroy the wart. Depending on the severity of the plantar warts, laser therapy requires some form of anesthesia. This treatment is very effective with areas that have a large number of warts.

Laser surgery treatment is not only effective in the removal of genital warts, but you can also apply this to remove plantar warts. It's highly effective, even much better then cryosurgery (which actually has 73% return rate). There's also less inflammation on the affected area and on its surrounding skin. The downside of laser therapy is it's very expensive. Unless your doctor advises this treatment for your plantar warts, laser surgery may not be a good first choice and perhaps a last resort.

Another treatment is cauterization. One type of this treatment is called chemical cauterization. A small amount of chemical (such as Trichloroacetic acid) is placed on the wart to destroy it. Chemical cauterization can be one of the best ways to remove warts and it has been proven to remove plantar warts. However, cauterization can be uncomfortable.

The other type of cauterization is called Electrocautery. Electrocautery (aka Electrosurgery) is used to get rid of many different types of warts. However the treatment is mostly used on small warts. The process involves applying an electrical current to and/or cutting the warts by your physician. Again, it can be effective but I would imagine not a desirable method to get rid of the warts unless you have tried other methods first.

Finally there are natural methods to use in removing your plantar warts. There are many benefits to this one is you can do this in the privacy of your own home. Also, most methods using natural ingredients are not abrasive to the skin and you'll have a much less chance of getting a scar. Some natural methods are very fast and can get rid of your plantar warts in as little as a few days. Also, they are less painful in general to implement.

So if you have plantar warts, you may want to review the methods discussed above. If you decide to use any of these methods make sure you know what's involved with each method.
