Various type of protrusions can develop on your feet, including bunions, calluses, and corns. Warts differ in both the source of them and the way they are treated. Here at O C Foot & Ankle, you can depend on our Riverside warts removal to get rid of the unsightly and potentially hazardous growths.
Is is the human papillomavirus (HPV) that is responsible for warts in the first place. This typically happens when you have broken skin. This is an opening for the virus and for the infection that results from it. Because any infection poses a serious threat to your health, you should be very careful when you have a wart. Don’t walk barefoot anywhere unless you are certain that it is clean. Some people simply wait for their wart to go away on its own. This may happen, but the risk is that they can spread, both to other parts of your body and also to other people. Just the simple act of touching your foot with your hand can transfer the virus there. And the wart can develop its own blood supply. Blood vessels grow inside it. At that point, our Riverside warts removal becomes more challenging. It’s also important to know that the first appearance of a wart usually means that you have had the virus for a while. Your wart may or may not produce any pain, but that is beside the point. Our Riverside warts removal is done right here in our office. If the color or growth pattern of yours is unusual or suspicious in any way, it will be biopsied. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
