Plantar Wart Removal

Conditions & Treatment > Podiatry > Conditions > Plantar Wart

Plantar warts, also known as verrucae pedis, are small bumps that appear on the soles of the feet. They can grow up to an inch or more, forming clusters and spreading to other parts of the body. They are often pale in colour with gray or brown spots. They can also develop an uneven surface and a cauliflower-like texture over time.

Depending on its location, warts can cause great pain especially when weight or pressure is involved. This usually happens with warts growing at the ball of the foot or at the heel.


  • Warts develop when a contagious virus, Human Papillomavirus, (HPV), invades the skin via cuts or abrasions, growing into small bumps that appear anywhere on the skin.

How can a Podiatrist help?

  • Podiatry treatment is one of the safest and least painful methods of removing warts. The podiatrist may apply various medications to expose the wart tissue after debridement, so as to remove it effectively. The wart can also be treated with cryotherapy, which involves the freezing of tissues below -60°C. It will take about 4 –8 sessions for a standard wart to be resolved.
