How Can I Get Rid of These Warts on My Foot?

Warts are usually a sign of skin irritation or infection. Stress, a busy lifestyle, bad hygiene, or irregular food habits can all cause warts to develop on the body. Sometimes they are caused by viral infections as well.

Most warts go away by themselves, though it may take a year or more for them to disappear. While most do go away eventually, this is not always the case. They can become a chronic problem and cause pain and inflammation in the infected area. When they form on the foot, they can affect mobility. Warts can also make a person feel bad about their body.

What Will Remove Warts?

Foot warts are an annoying problem to have, but there are several over-the-counter remedies you can try. Medications specifically for wart removal usually contain salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is effective in getting rid of both warts and acne.

However, if you have tried over-the-counter treatments and home remedies but none of them have worked, then you will need to set up a consultation for a wart-removal treatment from an experienced medical professional.

Before a doctor can prescribe medication for treatment, they will need to find the underlying cause behind why the wart appeared in the first place. This will involve a discussion and an examination of the wart.
