Podiatrist Recommended Care Tips For Preventing Plantar Warts
- Avoid walking barefoot in shared communal spaces, such as swimming pools and changing rooms.
- Keep the wart covered with a plaster and wash your hands frequently to avoid spreading plantar warts to other people.
- Keep your feet clean and dry. Clean your shoes and change your socks daily.
- Do not pick or scratch warts.
- Do not use the same emery board, pumice stone or nail clipper on your warts as the ones you use on your healthy skin and nails.
