WARTS OR PAPILLOMAS
Warts or Papillomas are benign growths that are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus.
This virus lives in your body and can present itself as warts on your feet.
Generally, warts are self-limiting (meaning they generally resolve on their own over time). However, they can become painful and require treatment.
There are many different treatment strategies out there to resolve warts. Some of these take years, some take months, some take weeks and some only take a few appointments.
Warts are very individualised, meaning we may be able to resolve one person’s wart with a couple of treatments, whereas another person may take a few months. It is all up to the way your body works and its response to clearing the viral infection.
Both our Podiatrists and Podiatric surgeons treat warts in varying ways, therefore it’s important to have a consultation to determine the right treatment option for you.
