Plantar warts are caused by HPV or Human Papilloma Virus. The virus is easily transmitted through warm, moist environments such as showers, public places, and pools. Children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk for plantar warts.
Treatment for Plantar Warts
While many treatments for plantar warts involve destruction of the wart tissue (freezing, acids, surgery) they don't get to the root of the problem, the virus itself. At the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City we use Swift, an immune therapy for treating warts that does focus on eliminating the virus. Learn more about Swift here!
