Sharon,

I'm not a doctor, but have you tried a dermotologist? I assume you mean plantars warts.

One of the gentlemen I work with had been suffering from plantars warts for a long while. After trying many treatments, both over the counter and from a GP, his best success was the dermotologist.

Best to both of you.

We have removed many painful warts with either a CO2 laser or a Flashlamp pulse dye laser. Have you seen a podiatrist. They will in most cases have a laser available to them
