Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar m tn Hello, Plantar wart is quite troublesome and stubborn to treat. For small warts that you have on feet, 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. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
359937 tn?1220987451 Hi, How is your son doing? Plantar warts are the warts that occur on the soles of the feet. These types of warts may resemble calluses or corns, but you can tell the difference because plantar warts disrupt the natural lines of the skin and may have small black dots on their surface, which are tiny blood clots in blood vessels. Warts usually don't cause any symptoms and do not require treatment, although plantar warts may be painful.
Avatar m tn all options work well in 60-70% of patients, and imiquimod (Aldara) is no better (and no worse) than others. Other choices are podofilox (Condylox is the main brand) and sinecatechins (Veregen), which like imiquimod allow treatment at home by the patient; and options that require office treatment, including podophyllin, bi- or trichloroacetic acid, freezing with liquid nitrogen, and wart removal/destruction by laser, electrocautery, or surgery.
Avatar m tn In males they are frequently found on or around the head of the penis. Medical therapy remains with Podophyllotoxin (0.15%-0.5%) /Imiquimod (Aldara)/Polyphenon E (green tea extract)/TCA (less effective)/Interferon (expensive) making every practice challenging due to their pros and cons.
Avatar f tn I think at least in my case it is stress related. In the last few years, I have had plantar facitis my left foot. numbness in both thighs if I stand too long, now that my mom in law is in the hospital with her problems and we are all going crazy, I'm stressed and my left foot is buzzing. HELP?
