Plantars Wart - Planter Wart Removal and Treatment Techniques

Warts are a very common problem. Almost 10% of the total population will have at least 1 or two wart on their bodies. Planter Warts are small epidermic growths caused by viruses - they are infectious and affect children most frequently. Warts and nevi are blemishes and mar the face. Most warts, disappear spontaneously without any treatment. It is because of this, that there are several claims of marvelous cures. You just have to listen to old wives tales and you may well believe that it is possible to get rid of planter warts by blowing on them nine times on a full-moon night, or by rubbing them with horses tails. Many of the modern remedies are not really any better either. So only if the wart is inconvenient, or particularly embarrassing or painful or spreading rapidly then only it should be removed. Otherwise I think, they are best left alone- in all probability they would disappear with time without any scars.

Warts are simple afflictions, not a threat to life, but they can be quite troublesome and may cripple the smooth running of day to day life, if one is over conscious of them.

What are Planter Warts?

Planters warts occur on the bottom or sole of the foot.  As planter warts are under pressure from standing and walking, planters warts grow inward, often causing great discomfort and pain.

Besides the cosmetic aspect, plantars wart, being painful, do not permit the sufferer to walk properly, the weight-bearing areas are painful and cannot take any pressure, resulting in uneven weight distribution to other areas of the feet which are not supposed to transmit the body weight. The result is obvious. The way of walking of a person becomes faulty and his feet arches are strained. This further leads to mal alignments of the joints and eventually may become one of the causes of arthritis.

Warts on the feet tend to be painful because they get trodden on. The warts on feet are only called planter warts.

How is Planter Warts caused?

Planter warts are caused by the virus (human papilloma virus, HPV) that causes other infections such as vaginitis and other genital wart viruses, detectable with a cone biopsy. Planter Warts are contagious. The condition stems from HPV virus and results in painful growths on the bottom of the foot. This virus can be acquired in warm moist environments and if often associated with using public places such as showers and pools. Planter warts are caused by the virus that causes other infections such as vaginitis and other genital wart viruses, detectable with a cone biopsy.
Planter warts can be differentiated from a simple callus (hardened area of skin) by characteristic dark specks (thrombosed capillaries) in the center.

Planter Wart Symptoms

Some of the planter wart symptoms include the following:

  • Planter Wart often have a black dot in the center, surrounded by a hard, white area. The dot is the blood supply to the wart, and the white area is the skin of the wart that is closely packed together.
  • Pain while walking.
  • Pain is characteristic of both corns and warts. If you press a corn vertically on the top with a blunt object, it is markedly tender; whereas in planter warts tenderness is felt when pressed from the sides.

Treatment for Removal of Planter Warts

While seeking for treatment of warts, it is important to remember that warts can disappear spontaneously. This is specially true of plane warts in children where the therapy is not only disappointing but may result in scars. It is, therefore, worthwhile waiting for a few years before considering actual treatment of warts in the case of children. The treatment of planter warts consists in eliminating them either by chemical lotion or physical means. A peeling agent like 4 per cent sulphur calamine lotion or Retino A cream applied daily, may be all that is needed to remove planter warts.

Freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen or carbon-snow is another effective method of treating planter wart. Planter warts can also be treated by curettage combined with electro-cautery. More conservative methods like application of Salicylic acid in paste form under occlusion daily for two to three weeks may also cure planter warts.
