Does Silver Sulfadiazine help treat plantar warts?

Will Silver Sufadizine creme work to get rid of plantar warts? I have read Silver Nitrate is possible cure for warts. Not sure the ingredients in the creme I have contain Silver Nitrate. The wart on my foot is sore with pressure and my orthodic insole inserts press on this area.

Hello
welcome to HCM
No ,neither silver sulfadiazine nor nitrate treats planter warts.
Planter warts are treated by salicylic acid paints /ointment ,or freezing with liquid nitrogen or surgery or eletrocautery .
I will suggest you to apply salicylic acid paint on it at night time .
keep the area well moisturized with Efatop PE cream.
wart removal by Electrocautery is best option as chances of recurrance are less as compared to surgical removal .
Go for silicon sole to prevent the more pressure .
For further doubts please write to us.
Thank you
