As activities open up again around Halton, our North Oakville Chiropodists have been seeing an increase in plantar warts.
Plantar warts are commonly spread in damp floors when walking barefoot. This s especially the case in change rooms and pool decks.
Even with increased cleaning protocols lately, it can happen.
Preventing plantar warts from spreading can be as simple as using flip flops or deck shoes. Avoid walking barefoot in areas of high traffic like change rooms, yoga, and dance studios.
What do warts look like?
Plantar warts often look like circular spots of callused skin. There is commonly a black dot in the centre of this area.
Plantar warts are usually flat and grow inwards. This is due to the pressure put on them from walking.
If you think you have. plantar wart, our Chiropodists can assess and start treatment in the first visit!
Do you have a plantar wart that you have tried to treat and maybe even your family doctor, but it won’t go away? This can happen. Our Chiropodists can provide you with different treatment options for warts that you likely have not tried yet.
If your foot issue is simply a callus causing you discomfort, our Chiropodists can assess and treat that also!
