How can you tell if it's a plantars wart and what does it look like? Can you catch it from another person? How do you get it??
It's a viral infection, so it can be contagious. I had several of them in my teenage. It started from one hand, and then to another hand, from 1 to 3-4, I remember. That's because I keep touching it. None of my family members had them, no one touched my hands so no one got it from me. The virus can exist anywhere, you touch it, it came to you. Many people contact the virus, only a very small portion of people had it. Plantar warts look quite special, find some pictures of them, then you'll be able to identify them.
It's caused by HPV and of course it's contagious. You normally do not catch it from other people cuz HPV is not easily transmitted through direct contact. You might catch it if you walk barefoot around swimming pools, however. That's where the HPV thrives.
Haha T’s the treatment process for planters wart
In some cases, a plantar wart will resolve naturally. Other cases may require treatment. You can treat a plantar wart a few different ways, either by seeing your doctor or treating the wart at home. Treatments include:
salicylic acid cream, a topical cream that can "burn" off the wart
liquid nitrogen, which can be used to “freeze” off the wart
curettage, which involves cutting out the wart
medicine applied directly to the wart
laser therapy to burn off the blood vessels that feed the wart
alternative treatments, such as essential oils
Salicylic acid cream and liquid nitrogen are the most common treatments. Both require multiple treatments over several weeks to get rid of the wart or warts.
Salicylic acid is available over the counter. You can use it at home. Follow the directions on the packaging, and expect to apply the medication for at least 12 weeks.
