: I 'd appreciate if someone could give me more info on
: the treatment of plantar wart.
: My foot hurts and the wart is there for more than 3 months. Unfortunately, in the past 3 weeks it has been driving me crazy during training.
: Thanks for any follow up.
I have had a plantar wart about the size of a quarter or Australian 10 cent piece for 8 years. I have tried wart kill paint, freezing, lazer burning and finally two weeks ago I underwent full surgery to have it removed. To my disappointment half of the wart has already returned (at a faster rate than the healthy skin around it). Now I am taking Tagamet (a drug for patients with Stomach Ulcers) apparently it will give me no side effects but that takers have noted that their warts have disappeared. I hope mine goes away. It is very painful. What ever you do try and get rid of it before it gets too big. Also they apparently like moist warm environments ..so change your socks after training etc to keep it dry.
