Podiatrist in Columbus, OH - Wart Treatment and Prevention
To prevent the spread of warts, follow these tips:
•Avoid direct contact with warts, both from other persons or from other parts of the body.
•Avoid walking barefoot, except on sandy beaches.
•Change your shoes and socks daily.
•Check your children's feet periodically.
•Keep your feet clean and dry.
It is important to note that warts can be very resistant to treatment and have a tendency to reoccur. Over-the-counter foot wart treatments are usually ineffective because their use can inadvertently destroy surrounding healthy tissue. Please contact our office for help in effectively treating warts. Our practice is expert in recommending the best treatment for each patient, ranging from prescription ointments or medications to, in the most severe cases, laser cautery.
