Can I cut off my wart?

Do not cut off a wart yourself! While it’s technically possible to perform a little “bathroom surgery,” and some people have claimed success using the method, it’s a very bad idea. Cutting the wart off won’t cure the core infection (so the wart is likely to grow back anyway), and if you do it improperly you can make the situation much worse and greatly increase your risk of a painful infection.

The most common treatment for warts includes either peeling medication like salicylic acid, freezing the wart (cryotherapy), or a combination of the two. If the wart needs to be cut out, we can perform minor surgery to safely extract the bump on your foot in our office.

If you’re dealing with a stubborn wart, you’ve tried home remedies, and you just want it gone, call Family Foot and Ankle Center, Inc. at (513) 728-4800 in Ohio, or (859) 282-1572 in Kentucky. We’ll help you find the right method for fighting these unsightly growths.
