Plantar warts are a common foot condition caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Although they are not usually a serious health concern, it is essential not to ignore them. Here are three reasons why:

They Can Be Painful and Unsightly

Plantar warts are often found on the soles of the feet, and they can be painful, primarily if they are located in areas that receive pressure when walking or standing. They can also be unsightly, with a rough, raised surface and tiny black dots in the center.

Ignoring plantar warts can worsen them, leading to more pain and discomfort. If left untreated, they can also spread to other areas of the foot or even to other people. Addressing them as soon as possible is essential to prevent further complications.

They Can Affect Your Quality of Life

If you have plantar warts, you may find it challenging to participate in physical activities, especially those that involve your feet. For example, walking or running may become painful, and you may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your feet.

In addition, if you ignore plantar warts, they can become infected, leading to more severe health issues. Infections can be painful and may require medical attention, which can be costly and time-consuming.

They Can Spread to Others

Plantar warts are highly contagious and can be spread from person to person via direct contact or by sharing personal items like towels or shoes. If you have plantar warts, taking precautions to prevent them from spreading to others is essential.

If you have children, addressing plantar warts is imperative, as they can quickly spread among kids who play together. By taking steps to prevent the spread of plantar warts, you can protect both yourself and others.

Plantar warts may not seem like a big deal, but ignoring them can lead to pain, discomfort and infection. They can also affect your quality of life and be a source of embarrassment. Therefore, seeking treatment as soon as possible is essential to protect yourself and those around you from the spread of this common foot condition. Furthermore, addressing plantar warts early on can prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
