Okay so I've had like twenty something plantar warts on my feet for about two years now and I've tried like everything to get rid of them. Is there some cheap and easy home remedy sort of thing that I could do to get rid of them? I'm just really sick of them and really want them gone.
Hello, Plantar warts are found on the bottom of the foot, caused by HPV and there is no specific category of plantar warts. For small warts, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.
Aldara (imiquimod) is a newer, non-destructive treatment for warts. It is applied to the warts three times a week, either with or without an occlusive dressing. You might need to soak and then pare or trim down the wart and then apply Aldara for it to work well. Persistent or very painful plantar warts may need to be surgically removed. You can want to discuss above mentioned intervention with your kid's pediatric dermatologist before taking a call on surgery.

Whether or not your plantar wart was treated or resolved spontaneously, most likely it never reappeared and you haven't had other warts of the hands or feet. Your partner can expect the same outcome for her anogenital warts.
