Looking for a doctor to help with your warts foot condition in or around San Francisco, the Bay Area, or Sacramento? San Francisco Foot and Ankle Center can diagnose and treat your warts condition.
Warts are small growths of skin that are caused by an underlying virus. Warts can appear anywhere on the foot but are most commonly located on the bottom of the foot. It may appear as a single lesion or a cluster of lesions.
Although warts may occasionally resolve on their own, it is beneficial to seek attention from a foot and ankle specialist as it is clinically difficult to distinguish warts from calluses. Conservative treatments for warts include shaving of the overlying callus tissue by the specialist as well as various topical treatments, cryotherapy (freezing) or surgical removal in severe cases. If the wart is untreated, it may spread and cause surrounding satellite warts.
