Suggest Treatment For A Plantar Wart On The Large Toe

default
Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2017
Question: I've developed a plantar wart on my large toe. At first I thought it was a small blister but after a month I realized it was more than that. It grew bigger and started to itch and irritate me so I went to my doctor who peeled away the callus and sprayed it with liquid nitrogen. He told me to come back in 1 week time for another round of nitrogen. Is this the right treatment? I have a gel of salicylic acid and lactic acid, can I also use that for treatment in parallel with the nitrogen? When would I use the gel? I've attached pictures of after the first round of nitrogen.
