Cantharone Wart Treatment

Cantharone is a wart treatment that we are currently using at Community Foot Care to treat plantar warts.
Warts are skin growths caused by viruses. Warts can grow on any part of the body and their appearance depends primarily on their location.
Foot Warts are usually on the soles of the feet and are called plantar warts. Most plantar warts do not stick out above the surface like common warts because the pressure of walking flattens them and pushes them back into the skin. Plantar warts usually appear as thick spot of skin.
The normal actions of these medications is to form a blister underneath the wart. This occurs within 24 hours of application. The blister formation kills the wart by cutting off its blood supply. Occasionally, there may be some blood in the blister fluid, this should not be alarming. The blister may also itch.
Once this Cantharone treatment is applied you should expect:
After 4 hours: mild discomfort may occur. Blister should occur after 24 hours.

Winter Boot Blues

 Don’t go for pointy stilettos, they may be the “fashion” but they are proven to cause bunions, hammertoes and ingrown toenails.
 Look for a boot that is not flat, but are less than 2 inches tall.
 Take your socks with you, and try on boots at the end of the day (to allow your feet to swell fully) and wear the socks or hosiery you plan to wear with the boots while you try them on.
 Try a boot with a wider heel to give your ankles more support.
 Select a boot with a rubber sole to provide protection.
 Remember most fashion boots are not made for snow.
 Buy leather boots. Leather over a synthetic material absorbs the best. Feet tend to sweat when they are closed in a boot, leather is absorben…
