How did I get a WART on my foot, and what can I do?  Warts grow after contact with a virus.  Viruses can be passed person to person and thrive in warm, moist environments like shower floors, locker rooms and swimming areas.  Wearing closed-toe shoes without socks can increase your chance of infection.  Often mistaken for corns and calluses, plantar warts typically appear on the bottom of the foot, grow deep into the skin and can be very painful.  Stay away from folk remedies which can actually do more harm than good.  At the Foot & Ankle Centers, among several treatment options, we offer FDA-approved, quick and painless laser treatment for warts right in our office.  A visit for consultation and treatment will take about 30 minutes, and you will be able to walk out of our office better than when you walked in.  Our doctors are certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery.  Call today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Bishop or Dr. Rappette at a location near you where WE PUT YOUR FEET FIRST!
