Warts are a contagious, viral condition that affects the skin and can occur anywhere on the body. For this reason, they are a problem frequently seen by podiatrists. Having plantar warts can be uncomfortable or even painful and, if left untreated, they can spread and multiply on your skin.
When should you see a podiatrist for treatment? If home remedies and self-care fail to treat the wart, then you can benefit from seeing a foot doctor for treatment. If the wart seems to be growing, is easily irritated, or is spreading, then consider scheduling a doctor’s appointment. Lastly, if the wart causes you significant pain when you walk or appears to be infected, then you should see your podiatrist.
