foot worts

Posted by matthew j on 11/22/02 at 09:04 (100890)

My girlfriend has worts on her big toe. She has had them lasered and it wasn't successful. I think she should have them surgically removed. Also, after they are removed I think she should buy new shoes and socks. Because worts are a bacteria, correct? Any advice would help. Thank you.

Warts are a virus, not a bacteria. A laser is a surgical procedure. The type of laser used is dependent on the distribution and depth of the warts
