My daughter has a plantar wart that is very painful for her and she needs to get it removed. I am not sure what method they will use to remove it, but it brought to mind a question that I thought someone here might be able to answer.
Don't think I am crazy...
When I was her age (early 1980's) I had a plantar wart that my doctor removed. I believe it was removed by ultrasonography, but I am not sure. I went to his office for a series of visits (weekly, I think). I had to soak my foot in a basin of warm water and his nurse took a wand-type device, placed it under the water, and moved it back and forth over the wart without ever touching the wart. It went away and never came back. My sister also had one removed this way around the same time period by the same doctor.
I am wondering if anyone else has ever heard of this type of treatment, or if anyone knows why it is not common practice. My sister and I have never heard of it since we received that treatment. If I mention it to anyone, they think it is bizarre. But it worked, and it was absolutely pain-free. It was actually quite relaxing.
