Foot warts are caused by viral infection and develop on the plantar surface of the foot. They have a roughened surface and have the same color as the skin. Warts may be small or round in shape but they can also occupy a large area of skin with mingles in clusters forming the so-called mosaic warts.
Warts absolutely must be removed because it can spread, may hinder walking, will undergo inflammation and are highly infectious. There are many methods of treatment. Our office removes warts by electrocoagulation. Cells infected with the virus are destroyed and removed by ultra-short electrical impulses. The procedure is almost painless. Usually after just removing one or two, the remaining warts will disappear spontaneously.
