HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE A PLANTAR WART
By Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists of Milwaukee, WI

Have you kissed a frog recently? Well, unless that frog turned into a prince, popular legend would say you’ve got some warts on the way! However true that belief may be, if you have warts, or any other skin issues on your feet, you may want to know what you’re dealing with.

There are a huge amount of dermatological issues that can plague the foot. From pressure ulcers to verrucae (warts), each skin issue can be caused by different pathologies. Consequently, the appropriate treatment for each type also varies. For example, verrucae can be described in many ways including; Flat Warts, Filiform Warts, Solitary Plantar Warts, Mosaic Planter Warts, and even Genital Warts. These warts are associated with strains of HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) infections and are usually treated by chemical, surgical, and also cryogenic methods.

Though these warts may be common place, something along the lines of an “Intractable or Isolated Plantar Keratosis” (An IPK) could be confused for a wart, although it is quite different. An IPK looks very much like a small wart on your feet. These small growths will usually show over a bony prominence. Most people compare it to constantly feeling like they are walking on a stone. Traditionally, paring or cutting off the IPK is the preferred treatment.

There are so many other issues that can plague the skin on your feet. A growth could be as simple as a pressure induced callous (medically termed a “Tyloma”). A growth could be as detrimental as skin cancer. Either way, these issues should be correctly diagnosed. If you are unsure, stop in today. We’ll take a look and ensure a happy and healthy future for you and your feet!
