Warts is a skin infection caused by HPV viruses. It can affect any age and any body part of the skin. Since it is an infectious condition it can spread to other parts of the body and can increase in numbers and size.
On feet, it is painful while walking. It should be differentiated from corn.
Corns occur our pressure points and corns are due to a mechanical problem and not due to infection. Hence the treatment for both conditions is different.
It is very important to make a correct diagnosis before excision (cutting them).
A skin specialist can differentiate between these two.
Different treatment mediation available to treat warts are:
- RFA /Electocautery? Lasers
- Intralesional injections
- Multiple dressings after passing of the lesion (usually preferred in multiple plantar warts)
- Immunotherapy to increase body immunity
- Cryotherapy / Liquid Nitrogen
- Topical treatment
- Oral medicines
