I've got a planter's wart on the bottom of my foot. I've been using compound W to take care of it. I've got it so it's flush with the skin on my foot, but it still does not look normal under where the wart was. How much longer should I continue using the medicine? If I stop now, will it grow back?

I lanced it with my CRKT and put medicine on the exposed part.

keep going for at least until it looks normal and is just peeling skin

Blow it off with tanerite 87 times.

You can buy nitrogen kits now and freeze it off.

my oldest daughter had those. Went to the podiatrist, he tried freezing, burning, abrasion.

Just caused a lot of tears. We asked him about Comp W. He pooh-poohed it.

We tried it as a last resort. It worked fine, and cleared them up for good. Guess he can fund his next boat purchase some other way.

Listen, Im a pro at these nasty buggers, I have 2 daughters on a swim team, the whole damn team is just infested with these warts and since my oldest now likes to use my shower........ Now I have them too !!! Get this stuff called duo film from the drug store, use it 2 times a day, just keep using it and removing the dead top layers as you can. Pretty soon the wart is history, untill the next one pops up.

Even less expensive way is to go to one of your local grocery stores and pick up a small portion of dry ice and carefully freeze it off.

I've had those little bastards a few times, I had them frozen off by the doc in the past, but I picked up a DIY freezing kit and did it myself this time, worked fine. Its called Wartner I think, and it wasn't much $$. It only took one shot to get rid of them this time.

I've been trying to get rid of mine forever now.

I used compound w (salicylic acid) to kill the skin. It just took forever to get through the callous. So I lanced it like the Rex said. It exposed the "fresh part." Then I started in with the compound w directly to the wart. Over a month later, it's still there. I went out and bought the freeze it yourself stuff, and did that a couple days ago. It's still there, as the directions say that the 'dead' wart and skin will take 10-14 days to sluff off, revealing healthy normal skin beneath.... we shall see.

Dude, that is the nastiest wart I've ever seen. Actually it doesn't even look like a wart. The ones I've seen have had little "seeds" in the middle. Good luck with that puppy!

A pair of pliers and a blowtorch. Get medieval on that thing.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 4:48:43 PM EDT
Its a planters wart. That means instead of normal warts that grow outward, your grows inward. The only way to do it that I know (and have had done) is to goto the doc and let him/her get in there with some pliers and yank it out. (After you've been numbed of course, and trust me, 3 needles going into your toes hurts very bad)

yep. you got to get in there and cut the MOFO out. expect to go deep and ge the "root". best thing i can say is get more than a few shots in you and hop in the shower with an X-acto knife and cut the chit out. when you think you got it nuke it with dry ice or that freeze in a can.
if your not limping the next morning you didn't go deep enough

They are very tough to kill. I've had one for 5 years that refuses to die. It's been Compound W'd, frozen (at home and with liquid N2 at the Dr.), burned with acid and lasered (at a cost of $600). I've taken Aldera and Tagament. All with no luck.

Right now I'm alternating trichloroacetic acid 100% with Compound W home freezing. I'm also doing some vigorous paring of the dead skin on top with a #15 scalpel before each treatment. It's working, but slowly. I estimate it will take at least 3-6 months of this to get rid of it.

The one thing you SHOULD NOT DO is cut the wart out. For two reasons: #1, it may lead to scar tissue which will be quite painful and #2, it often fails to get rid of the wart, and then the wart grows back amidst the scar tissue (try killing it then).

ETA: patchouli, yours looks like it's in a particlarly painful spot. Ouch!

ETA #2: It's spelled "plantar", which is latin for the bottom of your foot.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 5:21:48 PM EDT
sweet god! mine is nowhere near as bad as the one in the picture. that fucker looks like an evil eye!

I've just been using Comp W and peeling off the layers. It's pretty much flush with the foot, but I think it's still there under the skin a bit. I'll keep Comp W-ing it.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 5:28:44 PM EDT
OH DAMN, a planters wart,

I had one on the bottom of my left foot when I was a senior in highschool, the doc saw it and said DAMN..

The thing was as large as a .50cent piece, and left a huge scar on the bottom of my foot.

Neither did mine, till I cut into it.


I know it is disgusting to look at, but if it saves just one child....



Link Posted: 3/11/2006 8:44:33 PM EDT
I had this same problem. It was a rather large one on the bottom of my big toe. How it survived the trauma of being there (I am a cross country runner) I don't know. I tried freezing and the rub on application stuff, but to no avail. Eventually it got painful enough that I took the drastic poor mans measure of a k-bar and digging a big chunk of my toe out. It hasn't grown back in the two years since. I will advise you though, while it is effective, I had to go rather deep, and it was a VERY unpleasant experiance.

That's not a wart, thats an alien implant. Thats why you cant kill it. They tagged you, probably after you got probed.

"Now remember children, it's fucking "Plantar's" and not "Planter's" warts hmmkay? "

Link Posted: 3/12/2006 2:45:01 AM EDT
I had a plantars wart on the bottom of my foot years ago.

I used a pair of fingernail clippers to remove as much of the skin as I could, then applied Compound W. After a week or so of that, I pulled it out with a pair of pliers. I sterilized everything first.

Be advised. It will bleed pretty good, as you are creating a hole in the bottom of your foot. Mine has since healed up nicely. None since then.

Go see a foot doc, he will numb the area, and use a small ice cream scoop looking tool, then a caterizing tool, you get a bandage and in my case a funny looking foot brace to wear till everythung healed up.
