Wart treatment, Geelong
Warts can cause both embarrassment and significant pain, especially plantar warts found on the soles of the feet. Podiatry on Pako offers efficient and painless wart treatment in Geelong, including chemical removal.
What is a plantar wart?
These types of warts occur on the feet but also hands, knees and elbows. They are often confused with other skin problems and should be checked by a podiatrist. Plantar warts are seen in all age groups, but predominantly in children.
Causes of warts
Warts occur due to the verruca pedus virus affecting the skin. They are contagious via direct contact on shared areas such as showers, change rooms and sharing footwear.
Plantar warts treatment
Diagnosing warts is important! Standard treatments involve a safe chemical application to breakdown the affected area. This usually involves more than one treatment, but is a painless solution.
Chryotherapy, or liquid nitrogen, can also be used separately or in conjunction with chemical treatments with correct diagnosis.
