Hey. Sorry, I forgot I would post on what helped me with my plantar warts. The thing that finally worked for me was something called Curad Mediplast. The active ingredient is 40% salicylic acid. They are these little medicated pads that you put on your warts (you have to cover it with something to make it stick...I used something called Elastoplast..it's an elastic adhesive bandage). I'd leave it on overnight, then wash it off and scrub the areas with a pumice stone. I remember having to do it for at least a few months before they were finally all gone, but it did work. Mine haven't come back, and it's been about 3 years now. Might be worth asking your doctor about it. I also tried this other less strong salicylic acid cream stuff and covered it with duct tape every night...it got rid of some of my smaller warts, but not the bigger ones. Good luck!
