How to treat plantar warts

Treatment of plantar warts with Bleomycin

The treatment of plantar warts with Bleomycin is an extremely effective way to remove a plantar wart permanently.

What is it?

What is the Bleomycin plantar warts treatment?

Treatments for plantar warts target the virus that causes them. The virus infects the deepest layer of the epidermis, which is called the basal layer.  Treating warts on the bottom of your feet is especially hard because you have to get through the thickest skin on your entire body. That’s why over-the-counter or even liquid nitrogen treatments are often ineffective. These solutions remain on the surface and have trouble reaching the right layer of skin.

For who?

When is the Bleomycin treatment needed?

  • All types of plantar warts
  • Stubborn warts
  • Persistent, deep or large warts

What are the benefits of the Bleomycin treatment?

  • The most effective treatment for plantar warts
  • Reaches the deepest layers of infected skin
  • Typically just one treatment is required
  • Immediate antiviral effect
How does the treatment work?
  1. Establish a diagnosis :

    The podiatrist first performs a clinical examination to confirm the diagnosis of the plantar wart. He then establishes a treatment plan with the patient.

  2. Remove surrounding tissue :

    The thickened dead skin is removed painlessly using a scalpel.

  3. Apply medication :

    Bleomycin is put under pressure (without a needle) directly onto the plantar wart.

  4. Follow-up appointment :

    Two weeks later, the podiatrist will check to see whether another application is required.

Once treated, I will be immune to future plantar warts.
