There are many types of plantar warts. Some of them are very contagious and can spread over the entire body! Our podiatrists have the medical expertise to identify the specific type of wart and propose the appropriate treatment.
The plantar wart is caused by a virus of the human papillomavirus (HPV) family. They can be painful and contagious. People using public showers, swimming pools, spas and gymnasiums are more exposed to the virus. Some lesions can disappear by themselves. However, the majority of them will require the intervention of our podiatrists who are highly knowledgeable about the various treatment methods. The number of treatments and the treatment options will vary depending on the type of wart.
