PLANTAR WARTS

PLANTAR WARTS

 

What is a wart?

Warts are small benign skin tumors, infectious or viral by nature.

 

How can it be recognized?

Two type of warts exist:

  • Myrmecia: occurring very frequently, it has a rounded shape and is surrounded by a thick ring of keratosis (thickening of the skin). Its surface is pigmented with black points. It is often very painful.
  • Mosaic wart: it corresponds to a set of several warts located under the foot or on the toe. It looks like a corn and is painless.

 

Treatment solutions for plantar warts:

  1. Opt for a foot orthosis

A foot orthosis, without being a treatment, can contribute to relieve the painful area by providing a small hollow that reduces the pressure at the location of the wart.
