Foot Wart

How can we help?

Foot warts, also known as plantar warts, are a type of skin infection caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They typically appear on the soles of the feet and can be painful due to pressure from walking and standing. Treatment options include over-the-counter remedies, cryotherapy, laser therapy, and various medical procedures performed by a GP, a dermatologist, or a podiatrist.


They can sometimes be misdiagnosed as foot corns or calluses. Cryotherapy is a common method used to remove foot warts. It involves freezing the wart using liquid nitrogen, which destroys the affected tissue. However, it might require multiple treatments and frequent debridement. Consult with your podiatrist today to find out more.
