Small growths that usually appear on the heels or other weightbearing areas of your feet may be plantar warts.
Plantar warts are caused by HPV (human papillomavirus) that enters your body through tiny cuts, breaks or other weak spots on the bottom of your feet.
Most plantar warts usually go away without treatment. If you are concerned, book a consultation with Dr Kim.
Plantar Wart Treatment
Most plantar warts can be successfully treated with conservative treatments such as medication salicylic acid, cryotherapy, laser treatment or immune therapy.
If conservative treatment fails, Dr Kim offers minor surgical management. Dr Kim is the only Specialist Podiatric Surgeon registered in Queensland who surgically removes plantar warts. The surgery requires a local anaesthetic and a small skin cut depending on the size of the wart. No stitches are required.
