Treating Foot Warts in Ronkonkoma & Shirley

An example of an HPV cell that causes warts Warts that occur on the bottom of your feet are called plantar warts. Often they occur on the areas of the foot that experience the most pressure, such as the ball of your foot or the heel. Because of the increased pressure to those areas from walking and physical activity, plantar warts in these areas often penetrate deep into the tissue and can be very painful.

Warts are caused by a virus known as human papilloma virus, or HPV. They can be spread in moist environments such as public showers, locker rooms and swimming areas, but not everyone who comes in contact with a plantar wart will develop one.


Dr. Taormino will diagnosis a plantar wart based on physical exam and description of symptoms.

For more information about Warts or to schedule a consult with Dr. Taormino, call our Ronkonkoma, NY office at Ronkonkoma Office Phone Number 631-467-2813 or our Shirley, NY office at Shirley Office Phone Number 631-281-6882; you may also use our Appointment Request form.


Then Dr. Taormino will determine the best treatment plan for you; the usual choice of therapy is salicylic acid, which when applied daily eventually softens the skin layers of the wart so that it can be peeled off. This process may take several weeks or months.

Other treatment options for plantar warts include injection with medication, freezing them with liquid nitrogen, and removing them with surgery.

Dr. Taormino has had years of experience in treating plantar warts and will customize a treatment plan for you that will be as painless and effective as possible.

Without Treatment

Sometimes plantar warts go away on their own if left untreated. However, many warts can become increasingly larger and more painful and can begin to multiply into clusters of warts called mosaic warts. Walking and running will become difficult in these situations. Over time, some plantar warts can lead to a type of skin cancer.

Thank you to Dr T for helping my 8 year old with his plantar wart. We were treating it fir two months with no good relief. After just one visit and follow up treatment we finally got it resolved. The doc is soft spoken kind and very knowledgeable. Spends time with you and listens. He has also helped me with my plantar fasciitis. Highly recommend this office.
