Hair/Nails/Skin

Plantar warts are noncancerous skin growths on the soles of your feet caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which enters your skin through small or invisible cuts and abrasions. They're one of the most common warts seen by doctors.

Most plantar warts aren't a serious health concern, but they may be bothersome or painful, and they can be resistant to treatment. You may need to see your doctor to remove them.

 

Self-care

Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer were convinced that warts could be cured with dead cats and spunk water. And they aren't the only ones with a homespun theory. There are more than 100 documented treatments for plantar warts. Here are some of the most realistic remedies:

  • Salicylic acid. Wart medications and patches are available at drugstores. Unless you have an impaired immune system or diabetes or are pregnant, there's no reason you shouldn't try a self-care approach. To treat plantar warts, you'll need a 40 percent salicylic acid solution or patch (Compound W, Dr. Scholl's Clear Away Plantar, others), which peels off the infected skin. Apply the solution once or twice each day, being careful to avoid healthy skin, which can become irritated or damaged from the acid. You may need to use these products for up to three to four weeks to completely eliminate warts.

  • Doughnut bandage. If your plantar wart causes a lot of pain, consider wearing an over-the-counter doughnut bandage. This won't treat the wart, but it may relieve the throbbing. Place the bandage so the hole in the middle is directly over your wart.

  • Duct tape. In a well-publicized October 2002 study, duct tape wiped out more warts than cryotherapy did. Study participants who used "duct tape therapy" covered their warts in duct tape for six days before removing the tape, soaked their warts in water and then gently rubbed warts with an emery board or pumice stone. They repeated this process for up to two months or until their warts went away. Researchers hypothesize that this unconventional therapy may work by irritating the wart and surrounding skin, prompting the body's immune system to attack. This study didn't focus on plantar warts, but it does make a case for a promising, new, inexpensive, convenient treatment that may be especially good for children who find cryotherapy to be painful and frightening.
