A wart is a viral infection that can spread through cuts or open sores in the skin. At first, warts appear as spongy with tiny red, brown, or black spots and develop into a hard growth on the skin surface. Many people think that the dark spots in the warts are seeds when, in fact, they are small blood vessels that feed the wart.

Warts may be mistaken for corns or calluses. They can grow up to one inch or more in diameter. Left untreated, they can spread to other parts of the body.

Treatments include:

  • Freezing
  • Burning
  • Medication
  • Canthrone
  • Curettage (use of a small, spoon-shaped instrument to remove the wart)
  • Laser Removal
  • Drying agents (decreased moisture)
  • Alternating shoes

Over-the-counter medications may result in damaged skin and may be dangerous if you have diabetes or poor circulation. A podiatrist can help you determine which treatment option is best for you.

Avoid going barefoot in public showers, gyms and locker rooms. Moist settings are ideal for spreading the wart virus.
