Warts on the bottom of the foot called plantar warts or verrucae can often be very uncomfortable.
They can be so painful, you may think you have a splinter or piece of glass stuck in the bottom of your foot. A wart is a virus and can be easily transmissible between family members.
Treatment is often painless and involves the use of topical medication that, when professionally applied and monitored by our Podiatrists, proves very successful, particularly in the case of children. Occasionally stubborn warts can be removed using a surgical technique if required.
For more detailed information, see our Acrobat pdf Information sheets on plantar warts which is available on our website.
