(music) What’s up my toes? It is Jonathan, a.k.a The Toe Bro, and day number 10! We are still going strong. I’m still alive! I was getting a little scruffy, which is why it was helpful for me to do a surgery video yesterday. Cleaned up a little bit feeling much better. It’s wearing me down but I’m still going, still putting out the videos, still trying to give you guys the best information I can just so you guys get to learn a little bit more about your own feet, the feet around you, and see if you guys can help each other out. Today’s topic, as you guys have seen from yesterday’s video, is about plantar warts. It’s a very very very common issue that everyone probably will experience once in their life. As of now, I was just looking at a stat around 7 to 10 percent of all adults will experience a wart so it’s a pretty high number. Very very common issue you might have experienced them yourself. You might have them right now, you might be trying to treat them, and need a little bit more help. It’s a very common issue that’s very difficult to treat so I’m going to try to give you guys as much information as I can to help you guys out on what you can do with plantar warts. So number one what are plantar warts? Plantar warts are lesions on the bottom of your foot caused by the human papilloma virus or the HPV virus. There’s over a hundred and twenty different strands of the human papilloma virus.
There’s a certain specific strain of the HPV virus that causes plantar warts. Different strains cause different types of warts, whether it’s oral warts or genital warts and those two especially the oral and genital warts can lead to the development of cervical cancer. So in terms of plantar warts, they’re caused by the HPV virus but a different strand than those other types of warts. I’ve been asked as many times but there is no vaccination or the HPV vaccination that can help keep you immune from plantar warts because it’s a different strand. That vaccine is not going to help you with trying to stop getting plantar warts. Plantar warts means that the wart is on the plantar surface or the bottom surface of the foot. Warts don’t only occur on the bottom of the foot; they can happen on the tops of the toes, in between the toes, can happen anywhere else on the body, but when we say plantar warts we’re specifically talking about warts on the foot. What happens is the HPV virus is sitting on the floor and somehow it becomes in contact with your foot and transfers into the skin. The virus then infects the superficial layers of the skin and then the replication cycle starts and then we get the growth of a wart. There’s a few ways the virus actually gets into your body. It usually starts by trauma or by a portal of entry so cracked dry skin, sensitive thin skin, or it can happen due to having a decreased immune system or certain medications that suppress your immune system. Warts are most commonly picked up in places where many other people might be barefoot and might have plantar warts on their feet. So the most common areas you always hear about swimming pools, community showers, the gym, yoga studio, anywhere where people are barefoot, touching the ground and there might be a little bit of moisture. There’s this chance that there might be warts on the ground. Somehow the moisture allows the virus to stick onto your foot and then infect the skin. The crazy thing to think about is that warts only live on the top layer of the skin; they don’t go deeper than that. But what happens as the wart grows and multiplies, it actually pulls blood vessels and sometimes nerves from the deeper tissue into the top layer skin and that’s why sometimes warts can be so painful or uncomfortable to walk on. Most people don’t realize they have a wart until it really starts to bother them because there’s a basically a foreign object on the bottom of their foot and it’s under a lot of pressure, when we’re standing, the body builds hard skin to cover the wart and as the hard skin builds, it starts to apply too much pressure and then we get pain. Then someone looks at their foot and says hey what the heck is going on and then they realized they have something on their foot that shouldn’t be there. So, you know what warts are, you know where you can commonly pick them up, and you know that they’re just living on the top layer of skin; nothing deeper than that. So how do we treat them? Right now the majority of treatment involves doing one thing- damaging the top layer skin, where the wart lives. If you damage that top layer of skin, there’ll be no more tissue for the wart to live on and everything comes off. There’s two main treatments available in the wart section- that’s salicylic acid or some sort of liquid nitrogen spray or freezing. These are two options you’ll find four salicylic acid. You’ll have either liquid format or you’ll have medicated pads. Both of these will be applied to the wart multiple times causing the skin to be very wet, white looking, we scrape it down, and then we apply the liquid or the pad over and over and over until the thickness of the wart has gone. The other type of treatment we have here for warts it’s the liquid nitrogen or freezing aspect of wart treatment. So here we have a cotton tip that you apply into some sort of liquid nitrogen container which creates a very cool tip that you press against the skin and this one we have an applicator that you apply right to the foot. You push down and it applies that liquid nitrogen spray. The goal of these two treatments is to basically think of it as frostbite to the skin; it basically freezes the skin at such a temperature that damages the tissue, causes the dead tissue to come off, and hopefully the wart that’s in the top layer skin pulls off with it. So here again, we can see all the cryotherapy; this is all freezing the wart. We’re basically freezing the skin damaging the skin, think of it as frostbite, and the dead skin will peel off, dry off, come off, and hopefully the wart goes with it. This is all freezing. Down here, we have all the salicylic acid contained in either a pad or some sort of liquid stick or gel that you apply directly to the wart. Here, this one is 40 percent, this one seventeen percent. I would always go with the stronger salicylic acid because you’re gonna have more damage to the tissue and that’s effectively what we want to do, damage the tissue. So here we have one that’s twenty-seven percent, forty percent, Seventeen percent, so I definitely would go with this. If we go back to our corn treatment, we can look and it’s exactly the same; it is salicylic acid. It’s hard to see but this one is also 40 percent salicylic acid. So like I told you guys before, corns, calluses, and warts are pretty much treated the same way over-the-counter. You use the salicylic acid to damage and soften the skin so it can be easily removed. So what’s the best treatment for you guys to choose? It’s really tough. Really over-the-counter, you only have the two options: liquid nitrogen and salicylic acid. To me, salicylic acid might be a little bit safer than the liquid nitrogen. If you put too much of this freezing, if you press too hard or apply too much to the area, we can get a serious blister that can form and a lot of damage to the tissue. In terms with the salicylic acid, if you put the liquid on once, in a greater area than needed, yes the skin will turn white but if you stop after that, you have no more further reaction. If I had a choice between a liquid and the pad, I’d take the liquid or gel. The reason, if we look at the medicated pad, it’s only that size. So if you have a larger wart and that pad is not touching the medicated pad is not touching all of the wart, we’re not gonna get a good reaction. If we use a liquid we can tape around the wart isolating the bad warts, leaving the healthy skin untouched, and we can apply the liquid to the damaged area. So if we have a very irregular shaped wart or very large wart, this would be a better bet than this one. Same thing goes for the tip or the freezing with the like liquid nitrogen. We can touch exactly the wart that’s present and try to reduce the amount of damage to the normal skin. With both of these treatments, a lot of damage to the normal skin can happen so it’s very important we try to reduce the amount of damage to the normal skin by protecting the skin around using tape or something and then we isolate the tip or the liquid right over the warty tissue. With both of these treatments, whether it’s a salicylic acid or the liquid nitrogen, multiple applications are important. We damage the tissue and the most important thing is to scrape down that damaged tissue. The more that we’re able to scrape off, the thinner the skin, the thinner and less deep the wart is and the better the penetration of a salicylic acid or the liquid nitrogen. So the big difference, when you go to a foot specialist, they are able to scrape the wart very very thin, accurately, precisely without creating too much damage to you. But if you’re able to treat your own feet or if you’re able to reach your own feet, scraping down the wort is very very important. You would apply the liquid nitrogen or the salicylic acid. After you have the reaction of the skin or the damage of the skin, you scrape it down as much as you can, and apply it again. This is something that you repeat on a daily or every other day process. The more you scrape down, the better damage you’re going to get with the salicylic acid or the liquid nitrogen and hopefully the further the damage will get down in the top layer of skin to remove the wart that’s living there. The issue that I see a lot is people are doing a scraping but they’re using the same tool over and over. So you can use a corn or callus shaver but if you’re using the same blade or a file over and over over, you could be possibly reinfecting the area with the wart virus. So it’s important that if you’re scraping down the area, you’re using a disposable tool. When is it time to give up on over-the-counter treatments? After trying these over-the-counter treatments for roughly around two to three weeks and you’ve been going relatively consistent, plus scraping down the dead skin, if they’re still not resolving the problem, if the warts are still present, it’s still causing a lot of pain, that’s pretty much a sign that you should go see a foot specialist, your medical doctor, or dermatologist, to get more advanced care. At my clinic, I do offer laser treatment. Laser treatment is something that I offer in my clinic and what the laser that I use does, it targets the little black dots red dots of the wart. That’s the body’s blood supply that’s kind of mixed in with the warty tissue. What the laser does, it focuses on this tissue and damages it. We essentially create a very localized bruise to the area. What will happen over the next month month and a half, that bruise turns into a scab and the scab just pops off. The laser is able to penetrate much deeper and that’s why I do offer in this clinic because we’re able to penetrate deeper. The option that you saw yesterday, the surgical removal option, is something that I save for you know one, a really bad wart. A wart that’s really painful. A person can’t stand on it or they’ve had this wart for many many years that’s been treated many times and there’s a lot of maybe scar tissue or or callus, hard dead skin on top that’s really blocking the wart. Surgery is a great option, but it’s a lot more aggressive. We have to numb the area, we have to actually scoop out the top layer of skin, where the warts living. So we’re creating an open wound. The wound is going to fill up quite fast, but for the first couple days, it can be quite uncomfortable to be standing on depending on where it is on the foot and the size of it and then we have to be taking enough care that we don’t allow an infection to happen. But what normally happens is within the week to two weeks, the area fills up to the surface, we get a scab that forms and after a month, we’re able to see if there’s any more tissue still present. A really cool concept that has been put out there and a lot of foot specialists are starting to use, it is something called dry needling. So the reason why warts are so tricky to treat is that the body actually doesn’t know they’re there. The warts are sitting in that top superficial layer of the skin and they’re replicating in that area and because it’s kind of hiding on top the body, it actually doesn’t know anything is there. So the concept of this treatment is that we numb a wart and we push the wart using a needle into the body. What we’re trying to do is create some sort of immune response. So there’s been studies showing that by us treating one wart and pushing the wart right into the body, in within three to six months, sometimes we get this immune response by the body and the warts on even other parts of the foot areas, that never been treated, have been eliminated. I’ve done this quite a few times in my office and I’m around 60% successful with this treatment. It’s really something that I use when people have both feet covered with a lot of warts or very large warts and instead of treating it with surgery or laser, which can have a lot of complications, because it’s the large wart and the amount of pain or discomfort after the healing that sometimes this needling technique where we treat just one spot can get rid of everything. So we have liquid nitrogen, salicylic acid, we can go something stronger like laser treatment, we can do even surgical removal. All these treatments really just do one thing- damage the layer where the wart is living to hopefully get rid of the virus particles that are living there. We get rid of that those virus particles and we can have new healthy skin fill in. I know there’s a lot of home remedies out there. You hear about apple cider vinegar, crushing up aspirin pills. What’s really interesting about that, when you think about it, apple cider vinegar is an acid and what the acid does is damage the top layer of skin. All the treatments have the same principle: we damage the top layer skin, where the wart lives. If we can get rid of the top layer of skin, the warts gonna go with it. But because the wart is so much thicker or deeper because the skins thicker on the bottom of the foot and because we’re stepping on the wart, that’s what makes warp treatments so painful and that’s why treating it with routine scraping of the area is very important. So again, using apple cider vinegar, using salicylic acid, all these things can work because as long as we damage the top layer of skin and get rid of it, the wart will be gone with it. I’m really sorry for the late video, guys! It’s been a very very long day at the office and unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get to this sooner. Tomorrow I have 26 people booked 9 to 6. It’s gonna be crazy! I’m definitely gonna try my best to put something out during the evening tomorrow to get you guys those daily videos. It’s been a lot of fun but a lot of work to get these done. I’m quite happy with you know, the response and you guys following along. So continue to share these videos, comment, subscribe, if you haven’t. I’ve just finalized my location for my seminar, so I’m gonna put some info on that soon on the website. But again, June 9th, I’m having my first educational seminar. It’s basically themed “Step up Your Foot Care 101” and my goal is to improve your foot health, your foot knowledge, and your treatment of the feet for foot care nurses, for pedicurists, for nail technicians, anyone who deals with feet; I would love to improve your services so you guys can provide an even better experience for your clients. So that’s what I’m really hoping to do. If you ever want any more info, please go to the website www.thetoebro.com and you can get some more info there. So, sorry for the late video, guys. Check in, watch it, I hope you like it tonight, sleep in tomorrow. I’ll be at the office. Toe Bro, out.

  1. Hi TOE BRO, this is the best video I ever heard on YouTube that explains WARTS. Thanks so much for even showing us the different medicines that can be used. It is such an informative video. Thank you. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  2. I had a planter wart on my heel when I was younger. Went away by itself with no treatment. No clue how.

  3. Thanks! I always wondered what caused these warts. Love all of your videos. They are so informative. Thanks for being so informative to your followers.

  4. I have this wart on my right hand and I've tried Compound W in the past with great success. Today I found in Target product call Dr. Scholl's Corn/Callus remover that has the same active ingredient of Salicylic acid at 17%. I remember Dr Farmer that teaches at University of Hawaii pharmacology telling me that some products have the same active ingredient. This product is $4 cheaper. So, I'm going to try this product on my wart nd let the Toe Bro community know if it works. Thanks again, Tom TL

  5. Here' the update on the study I'm doing between Compound W and Dr. Scholl's Corn/Callus remover. Dr. Scholl's Corn/Callus remover I'm using to removing a wart is around $4 cheaper. I am very impressed so far with both. Dr. Scholl's Corn/Callus remover that has the same active ingredient, salicylic at 17%, as the Compound W wart removing product. I should also note that I have used Compound W before on similar warts. I can see a slight difference in their "inactive" ingredients. Compound W does a slightly neater job in removing the wart but, Dr. Scholl's Corn/Callus remover is getting the job done. Compliments to the engineers and scientists at Compound W for going into a noticeable difference in a detailed design of an aesthetic medicine. Compliments also goes to Dr. Scholl's for their aesthetic medicine design at around $4 cheaper with only a slight difference so far. There are families that are challenged financially and this price difference does make a difference. Please remember I'm not a doctor I'm a medical student and this is my personal observation.

  6. First of all, thank you for the information. In my case, I am on Humira which is an immuno-suppressant for Chrohn's Disease. I have 3 plantars warts on my right foot. One is just outside the crevice of my little toe near the ball of my foot, one st the ball of my second toe and one on the ball of my foot below the 3rd toe. My doctor did cryo freezing on the one by my little toe however that one came back and then the other two developed. I wear "rubber flip flops all the time.1) I am wondering if the virus is spreading from wearing flip flops? 2) We have carpeted floors and wondering if the virus could be "living" in the carpet and if so, how do we "sterilize" carpet? 3) Due to my suppressed immune system will I ever be able to effectively treat the warts?

  7. I've had one before on the inside of my pinkie finger and I just recently got another one in between my right end toes. I know it takes a while to treat it but I can't wait for it to be gone!

  8. Hey Toe Bro, I want to know how long do we need to treat the plantar wart using over the counter medicine. For Ex : Dr Scholl's Plantar wart removal. I guess, the common warts removal strips also help. Please let me know. And thank you for your research on the Plantar warts!

  9. one comment about the OTC wart freezing products. They do not use liquid nitrogen. The chemicals that they use only achieve about -100-deg F. Liquid nitrogen is less than -300-deg F. A dermatologist is the best bet to get rid of plantars warts

  10. Great video!! Thanks for the information, Jonathan. It's extremely helpful! But I do have a question – I am doing the gel treatment on my own plantar wart which is pretty stubborn and big in size. Recently, I was able to peel the whole area after couples of treatment(usually do one treatment per day). But with the treatment going deep into the skin, it becomes really painful to put on the next treatment after I peel it. Is this common or did I do it wrong? I read lots of people 's comments on the gel treatment and most of them say there is no pain at all or the pain only last a short while. But my lasts all day long. Sometimes it's even hard to fall asleep at night. Please advise! Thanks in advance!

  11. This is definitely the most helpful thing I have found I really appreciate it!

    I am trying to get rid of a plantar wart I have had for over 10 years now. It really sucks because there is a lot of tough skin surrounding iit.i have salicylic acid gel and I will try scraping now Thanks

  12. Thanks for the video and advice! One question I have is about the Wartabater. Have you hear of this electronic wart removal device and do you think it will work?

  13. Wonderful explanation Jonathan. I really appreciate your time. Take care of yourself as the body will knock you flat if you don't rest.

  14. I had a small plantar wart once and treated it with salicylic acid pads ^^ it damaged the skin around the wart so it just fell off by itself so I definitely recommend this treatment :p

  15. good advice, been using the acid stuff on a very stubborn wart on my heal part of my foot and my son helps every night scraping the dead skin down. Just doesn't seem to want to finally go away tho? been doing it for well over a year too.

  16. So frustrating… I went to my primary care physician and showed her my wart and she said to put Neosporin on it, and why did I pick it??? I've had it for a couple of years but unfortunately only recently have had health insurance… everybody yelled at me for trying to treat it myself, but when I went to the doctor she shamed me. I've tried a few different things in the past, but I've never been consistent… watching your video made me realize that I should give it another try, to keep applying the pads, and if that doesn't work insist that my doctor gives me a referral to a podiatrist. It's very painful, I can't wear closed-toed shoes because it's on the top of my toe… it's so unattractive, I'm embarrassed when I go to get a pedicure and and if I'm to understand that it's a wart and possibly contagious, I'm really doing them a disservice by exposing them to the virus. Thanks for all the helpful information… I'm so glad I watched your video!!!

  17. I just want to share that I have plantar warts right now. Before, I only had one small wart. I removed it by straining it daily and once I felt that it is numb and "out" of the skin already, I cut it off with a nail cutter and there was a lot of blood. I thought that, that was the end of it because it was the method my brother did to remove his. Sadly it is only today that I am getting a more legitimate treatment, but now, the first wart has doubled in surface area and two more small warts appeared in two different locations; all on the same feet. And now I want to know what is the fastest method because my treatment right now is putting salycylic acid then putting some sticky brown tape. And my derma told me that itll take roughly half a year.

    P.S this video was posted on my birthday, this is a gift for me that I have not seen before, I guess.

  18. I took pics of son’s bottom of big toe planters wart & he recorded my treating it, so maybe I’ll post a video in Nov. For 3-4 wks, I’ve frozen it twice, wks apart, scraped it w/ clean scalpel about 4-5 times, & started 17% salicylic acid last week & have applied days apart about 4-5 times. The bottom of his big toe looks pretty “rough.” (I plan to file). I think we have it beat. I’ve been wiping scalpel blade w/ 70% alcohol wipes & I haven’t been wearing gloves. No open cuts on my hands, I wash well, & only a few skin flakes on my hands & touching toe, but not wart. I shall see! 😅

  19. Thank you for this. Very informative. Had a lot of good information about it. Just what I was looking for. Thanks.

  20. You keep calling it "liquid nitrogen" but it is not. The OTC cryogenic wart removers contain dimethyl ether under pressure to keep it liquid. Pressing it releases the pressure and volatilizes the liquid, cooling it significantly – temperatures reached are close to -24 degrees C.

    Actual liquid nitrogen cannot be obtained over the counter but is available at a doctor's office. Temperatures achieved there are much colder: -196 C.

  21. I had roughly 20 on my right foot. I was pretty much unable to walk due to the pain. I tied everything with no luck. Till I tried a home remedy that cured it in 1 week. 1 soak your feet in warm water every night for 10 to 20 minutes. 2 dry them. 3 apply apple cider vinegar to the warts. 4 wrap the affected foot with Saran Wrap and sleep with it on. When you wake up remove the wrap shower then apply blue star ointment to the foot put your socks on and repeat for a week. I had to share this because it saved me so much pain it works no surgery…

  22. My son had a few on his foot and the foot dr we went to used some type of medication that was made from/ by beetles. No pain and worked quickly. Unfortunately he retired

  23. Toe bro! I am a huge fan of yours. I really respect you. You share such important information, making it free and readily available for us to benefit from:) god bless your heart:)

  24. Thank you so much for your videos! Suffering from a plantar wart at the moment, last month an ingrown toenail ugh but your videos have helped tremendously! I will try over the counter first and have had luck with that in the past. Your toe bro fan from Missouri!

  25. Thank you very much for the information how a wart live, i am now a bit more confident about treating my relatives foot problems, really very informative video, i've been doing the things wrong all this time, but now thanks to you i will look i do it the way you mention about getting rid of the upper layer of the skin.

  26. As a mother who had to deal with warts on my childrens hands I used to smother the warts twice a day with clear nail polish. Worked like magic. All the warts fell off. Is it worth a try on the foot as well.

  27. Hi, does chemical peels help in removing facial tiny warts, they are not raised, very tiny. Pls answer and help.
    If chemicals peels don't help I will go for salysilic acid liquid form for my facial warts.

  28. I have had a plantar wart on my foot for years and i am just now finding out what it is. It has never bothered me. However I am ready to get rid of it because for me it's a bit embarrassing. Thank you for making this great video.

  29. Hey man! These are cool and I have a question! I have a very stubborn wart that she tried freezing for months, then beetle juice once (created a donut shape), and last she injected it a few times. But, the third injection I got created an infection that went to my bone was was excruciating 😖. I never flinched for pain, but that knocked me down… I’m now using imiquimod cream daily. Is that the right thing or what else would you try? Two new ones (tiny) have formed and I’m just getting tired of it and will never shower at the gym ever again! Thanks Doc!

  30. Curse the YMCA pools. I just want to exercise gosh darn it! But at least I know what it is and how to treat it now THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATIVE VIDEO!

  31. I am a Podiatrist in the US. I enjoy your videos. I agree, warts are very resistant and can be difficult to treat. Recurrence is also a very common issue. Keep the videos coming. Thanks!!

  32. Hello, i watched this video for the first time some weeks ago, and thanks to you i learnt alot about treating the warts. I can now tell i've sucessed treating the plantar warts on a family member foot, after 7 weeks of treatment, applying the medicament 2 times at day, religiously soaking, sanding and removing the skin, using disposable gloves, blades and files to avoid cross contamination, after all that in 7 weeks the warts are gone!!! Yay, i am very happy i could help her, she was having problems walking due to the pain of the warts so big and deep she had but now her feet are healthy again. Thank you very much, i remember i watched this video over and over again until fully understanding how warts work. A huge hug and a kiss for you, for all your time invested to help us deal with foot problems 🙂

  33. Thank you so much for posting this, been struggling treating it with a dermatologist for 3 months and one session every month so i'm not sure cause they're saying i should wait for the skin to regenerate till the next session…

  34. Ive had plantars wart for about 2 months now..had some pain on and off and thought it would go away on its own. didnt even know what it is until my doctor told me today.

  35. Thanks Little Garrett 8 years old soon 9 =) Thanks for the great info as his doctor just said get OTC without any great details

  36. What are your thoughts on oregano oil for plantar warts if someone wishes to go a more homeopathic/natural route?

    Very informative video! 👍🏼

  37. I just subscribed, thanks for the info. well I had one under my heal. for 4 months now, unfortunately i went swimming. and it get bigger. like it was about to burst out of my feet, thought as the color in the pool helped it out. unfortunately was not painful(till i press on it), but after swimming it is. I used aloe vera to help. but now I got other 3 small on the same feet. NOw the big one has black circle after i used the acid u suggested. I scraped it . but till when I should do so, what are the signs and the final pics that means it is healed. PLEASE show us last pics that indicate it is curred

  38. I’ve done all these over the counter things , none worked for me. I had Drs freeze it, burn it, inject into it – made no difference it’s still there. It’s been I’d say at least 30 yrs not one of the things worked. Help oh to make matters worse I had 1 now I have 2. I’ve tried everything but nature must have a remedy. I keep looking.

  39. Hey man I've had them on my heel that spreads for probably over 5 years low-balling it and I've tried the salicylic acid one you've explained, constantly and it always comes back. Should I try freezing it? Please help

  40. When I was young I got one on my foot from a public swimming pool, it went away with one treatment and didn’t have any problems. Now I’m 20 and I got one on my finger from sharing gloves at work. I tried the freeze off and the next day I had 4 new small ones on my other hand. Needless to say DONT USE FREEZE OFF! how I removed all of them (so far) is by putting on the extra strength Salycylic acid, then apply SILVER duct tape over top. Leave it on for as long as possible. Once the skin goes white, I took a small razor used for eyebrows and shaved off the dead skin. Kept applying the acid and did this regularly. The small ones went away within two days. My latest wart (about 1/2 inch) is now down to the skin, smooth but still pink from the scarring. I had these for over a year and this method worked for me- someone with a low immune system. I think if you’re relentless about it your body will eventually give up and they will stop popping up as much.
    Another tip I have is if you see a new one treat it immediately before the skin becomes thick and hard. I had these for a long time and didn’t think I could ever get rid of them. Good luck to everyone dealing with this right now.

  41. To anyone battling plantar warts I just want to share what finally healed mine after I suffered for months. I tried almost everything…salicylic acid, duct tape, tea tree oil, freezing it, burning it, and probably many more things I'm forgetting. Finally I bought some Cimetidine and took 400 mg twice daily for two weeks and duct taped a banana peel to my foot for 3 days. Cimetidine is technically for heartburn but it is known to help fight plantar warts because it can raise your lymphocyte count. But I REALLY noticed a difference after using the banana. After using the banana the wart turned brown. When using the banana it is important to soak the foot once a day in warm water and then file the old dead skin off. And let me tell you my wart was so painful that it would wake me up from a dead sleep because it would be throbbing in pain. But it's finally gone!! 😭😃

  42. Thank you so much! My 8 year old daughter has a plantar wart on her heel. Thanks for being so informative about this issue!

  43. Thank you. Very helpful and accurate information here. I've dealt with many clusters on the bottom of both feet. Using a high concentration of salicylic acid then covering with bandaids that I cut to fit the treatment area, then daily cutting away the dead skin tissue with nippers and a surgical type blade was the only treatment that really worked for good. It takes some dedication and persistance but if you stick with the treatments it will finally go away. Keep in mind, the acid might burn sometimes but that's how you know it's working.

  44. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and treatment options of feet warts. I have one between my first and second toe, it had actually moved up the second toe , I have had it frozen off by a dermatologist 4 times, in addition to that I have had it 3 times surgically removed by a podiatrist. Guess what, it is back, bigger and badder than ever. I just went last week to a dermatologist again! He froze it, missed the wart and made a large blister beside it. He said come back in 2 weeks and he will try again ! Wow is it painful now. I wish I lived in Canada to come into your office, I know you would help this grandma get rid of it once and for all! . I just found your channel and subscribed …THANK YOU I'm going to try the liquid treatment today! Regards, =^..^=

  45. very informative, thank you! The dry needling treatment is fascinating, do you think that the method would then prevent future viruses of that strain?

  46. Great video.. I thought it was a callues up until my Father told me it's a planter wart.. Very painful and embarrassing some. Thank you! Toe Bro

  47. when i first heard of it i actually thought that HPV is like only itself and there isn’t any like 126 different types of HPV.. so as a dumb and young teenager i was so worried cuz i AM NO WAY IN HELL sexually active so i was about to cry till i saw this
    thank u so much for explaining😭😭❤️

  48. A small correction: Over the counter cryotherapy treatments are NOT liquid nitrogen (-196.1°C / -321°F) which requires special storage. They are dimethyl ether and propane (DMEP) (−41 °C / −42 °F). These OTC treatments are often ineffective compared to actual liquid nitrogen because the of the comparatively high temperature of DMEP.

  49. YOU GUYS if it wasn't for my curiosity to take matters onto my own— after a brief consultation with my doctor ( which she didn't even help me fully understand how to remove this thing) I wouldn't have found this video….just treated my own foot and holy shit NO MORE PAIN. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Some people go YEARS with this horrible pain; I only had to deal with it for about two weeks and had enough…..f*** im so relieved.

  50. Quick question! After applying the salicylic acid, should you cover the wart with a plaster, rinse the acid or just wait for it to dry out? Thank you!

  51. One for the best self-help, medical explanation/treatment videos I've seen on Youtube! If I still don't have success, I'd be happy to make an appointment with you. Thanks for the help!!
