Hi..I had 4 plantar warts cut out back in December last year.They were on the bottom of my feet.3 on one foot and 1 on the other.I was told that they may come back.My question is I don't think they ever left.My feet are still so sore and hard.I am living on advil 3-4 times a day.When I asked the dr back in december he said he wouldn't even be able to tell if they were back for months.Once they are cut out do your feet start to soften up and not hurt anymore?I can only wear two pairs of shoes.It was so painful to get them cut out and now i'm still in pain.What else could be done.

BrandiHi, Warts are caused by Papilloma virus and their removal may have damaged the fascia. My warts have gone away when I coated them with colloidal silver with no after effects. For pain I have had fantastic relief using DMSO.

  • Hi, Warts are caused by Papilloma virus and their removal may have damaged the fascia. My warts have gone away when I coated them with colloidal silver with no after effects. For pain I have had fantastic relief using DMSO.I had my first plantar wart when I was 12 and yes they can come back but ususally years later. I am 56 and have them return every 5-10 years or so. After going to the doc for removal I have learned how to treat them myself. Be sure you have completely removed them or they will return much sooner than a few years. You can tell you have gotten to the bottom of the wart when you see a small black spot which is close to the blood supply. I remove mine by using liquid wart remover, let that soak in and do its work for a few days then scrape with a knife or razor blade (be careful) to remove dead tissue and repeat until you get to the bottom. You will know you have hit bottom when you see the black spot.

  • If you just dont go barefoot they should go away on their own. If they are really bothering you, you can have dlectrodesiccation and curettage. High-frequency electric current destroys the wart and is followed by surgical removal of dead tissue at the base and application of an antibiotic ointment (such as polysporin), covered with a bandage, for 48 hours. This method is effective for common, filiform and, occasionally, plantar warts.

  • Hey Brandi! Sorry you went through that! I know this post was from 2010, but I'm curious how you're doing now. I ask because, although I didn't have wart cut out, I had a really bad plantar wart that I was able to get rid of using salicylic acid, epsom salt soaks and duct tape. It seems to gone for good, but I suppose it could creep its way back. I have before and after photos on my blog where it shows the disappearance and lack of any scar if interested. http://stubbornwart.blogspot.com/

  • Unfortunate that the treatment for these warts is always painful. Apart from cutting them out the doctor can use liquid nitrogen to freeze the warts. You can also buy an acidic compound which you can apply yourself over a period of time. I struggled for 30 years with different treatments and a fluke injury cut the thing off my foot. Persevere with treatment. I think they have their own blood supply and thats why they appear dark in the middle. Dont give in to it.
