I remember being told as a child that playing with toads will give you warts.  That old wives tale would be hard-pressed to explain plantar warts, or the warts you get on the bottom of your foot, unless you’ve recently stepped on a toad.  While these skin growths rarely pose any major health concerns, they can make walking unbearable.   Those that have been present for a long time begin to feel like stones in your shoes, even when you’re not wearing shoes!  So what exactly causes those painful growths?  What is the best way to treat them and keep them from coming back?

Warts are actually an overgrowth of your skin cells caused by a virus.  The Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV, has many different strains that attack different parts of the body.   Some strains prefer moist, membranous environments that occur in the mouth while others, ie verruca plantaris, bury themselves in the foot.  Because of the thick skin at the bottom of your foot, the virus is able to avoid detection by your body’s immune system.  The virus is very common and can easily get into your skin through a minor cut or scrape.  You can greatly lessen the chance of contracting the virus by avoiding going barefoot.

The virus can survive in shoes and other surfaces for periods of time.  Because of these ‘reservoirs’, it is important to avoid sharing socks or footwear with anyone.  Sharing shoes with someone who has the warts themselves puts you at increased risk of catching it.  Not to mention the bacteria, yeasts, and fungus that can cause athlete’s foot or discolor your nails.

There are many different options for treating plantar warts and Dr. Thomajan will discuss the best treatment option for you. Because some individuals are more sensitive to the virus and your body has little immunity, re-infection is common.  The best way to avoid it from happening is prevention through proper foot care and footwear.  Inspecting your feet and identifying warts early is a great way to make the treatments most effective and least painful!

I visited different hospitals but they gave me a list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which are very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedies on Herpes and I saw comments of people talking about how dr ishiaku cured them. I Was scared because I never believed in the Internet but I was convinced to give him a try because I had no hope of being cured of herpes so I decided to contact him on his email, i searched his email on the net and I saw a lot of people testifying about his goodness. When I contacted him he gave me hope and sent a Herbal medicine to me that I took and it seriously worked for me, am a free person now without any problems, my HERPES result came out negative.

I have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 2 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Oyagu helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is [email protected] just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on [email protected] visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome Or whatsapp him via +2348101755322
