Plantar Warts Treatment at Sole Focus Foot and Ankle with Dr. Dalal

What are Plantar Warts?

Plantar warts are common foot conditions caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Found specifically on the bottom of the foot, these warts thrive in warm, moist environments such as public showers, swimming pools, and locker rooms. Plantar warts can grow to be painful, often described by patients as feeling like a stone in their shoe, particularly when pressure is applied during walking or standing. Dr. Dalal at Sole Focus Foot and Ankle in Marlton, New Jersey, specializes in the treatment of these problematic often recurring warts, not only for cosmetic reasons but also to alleviate discomfort and prevent interference with daily activities.

Signs and Symptoms of Plantar Warts:

Plantar warts are characterized by:

  • Rough, Spongy Growth: Typically appearing on the soles of the feet.
  • Coloration: Warts may appear gray or brown with black pinpoints, which are small clotted blood vessels.
  • Pain and Tenderness: Especially when walking or standing.
  • Callus Formation: Often over the wart, as a result of pressure.
  • Mosaic Warts: Clusters of smaller warts that can develop into larger affected areas.

  • Fast Treatment Times: Each treatment session lasts only a few seconds, making it incredibly convenient even for those with busy schedules.
  • No Post-Treatment Dressings Required: Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment without the need for special dressings or follow-up care.
  • High Efficacy Rate: Studies show that Swift Microwave Therapy has a high success rate in removing plantar warts, often succeeding where other treatments may have failed.
