www.PatelPodiatry.com Warts are very common. Many people have them, even when they are young. I’ve had parents who have come in and told me they had warts when they were younger and had people coming after them like mad scientists. We don’t have to worry about this anymore. Warts are common in children because it is a viral infection that gets into their skin. It does not invade your body or cause any sickness to you, but it can spread within your skin and cause pain. It is contagious in which you can give it to someone else. We treat it with various methods. First, we make sure that if it is protruding out of your skin that we’ll reduce the thickness of it and reduce the pain. We put medications on it and pads on them to control the amount of discomfort you have. Then, we find out if you sweat too much and control the sweating. We make sure your shoes are proper, and we help you avoid getting warts again once we get rid of them. For help getting rid of your warts, contact the podiatrists at Family Foot Care & Surgery at 203-876-7736 or online at http://www.patelpodiatry.com/contact.cfm.
