Welcome to Foot Talk Fridays!
Today we’re going to talk about warts to the feet.
A lot of the time warts can be misdiagnosed as corns but they both look quite similar and under a microscope they look very different. For a corn, you really get under one of the heads of the bones or on one of the fifth, fourth, third to second toes. You get them from high pressure areas.
But, a wart can be anywhere on the foot. On the heel, on the outer edge of the foot, under the arch, under the ball of the foot, on the toes, tip of the toes and other places of the body. What we do for warts is something completely different to what we do for corns.
So, for corns we would redistribute the pressure from the corn area or you would wear wider shoes. For warts, we would do something called ‘Dermojet’ which is what we’re really known for at Dubai Podiatry Centre. Dermojet is a micro jet of liquid that goes into the skin. With warts, they grow really deep into the tissue area of the body. For the rest of the body, they grow outwards on top of the skin. But, on the sole of the foot they get drawn into the skin so they go very deep and that’s why traditional methods of cryotherapy, of salicylic acid and superficial treatments are quite difficult to get rid of a wart. Sometimes, these traditional methods can anger the virus and make it spread, so Dermojet penetrates the skin and subdermal tissue layer to rectify the situation and get rid of your wart for you.
Enjoy the rest of your Fiday!
