Plantar Wart Removal in Calgary

A wart is a small growth on the skin of the foot that is caused by a viral infection. Warts can occur on any area of the foot but are common on the bottom of the foot. Warts result in thickening of the skin and in some cases, resemble a callus or corn. Warts can grow as a single wart or as a cluster of warts. North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic offers plantar wart removal in Calgary. Warts commonly spread to other areas of the foot or to the opposite foot. Plantar warts (warts on the bottom of the foot) are considered the most difficult to treat.

Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of a wart can include:

  • Thickened skin 
  • Pain. Plantar warts are quite often, but not always, painful when standing or walking. Plantar warts are usually painful when squeezed in a side-to-side fashion
  • Small black dots in the area of thickened skin. These black dots are actually dried blood contained in the small blood vessels of the wart 
  • Cauliflower like appearance on non-weight bearing area of the foot

What Causes a Plantar Wart?

Warts are caused by a virus known as Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). The virus that causes warts is usually acquired by direct contact with surfaces contaminated with the virus. Warts are usually acquired from public places like health clubs, shower rooms, hotel rooms; however, they may also be acquired at home if other family members have the virus.
