Planta Wart removed
streeter22 posted:
I had a planta wart cut off just over a month ago. It has been healing fine and just about closed. There was never any infection, swelling or redness of any kind. But to this day I am still unable to walk and put pressure on that foot without having alot of pain. I also have random burning sensations in that foot for no reason. Does anyone know if this is normal and if so how long this pain will last before I can walk normally.

Dear Srteeter22.

Plantar warts are very thick and can cause severe discomfort.
There are a few things that may explain your predicament:

-- there may still be wart left behind (the core of the wart).

--the removal may have caused some nerve damage

Either way, pls go see the doc that did the removal for follow up.

I hope that helps
