I have a wart or is wort?

I have a wort on the bottom of my foot. My husband tells me that this isn't just any wort it is what's called a planters wort. So instead of being the visible bumpy ugly thing on your skin this is inside my skin and it feels like I am walking on a pebble stone all day. It's very annoying and sometimes down right painful. I heard that these lil boogers are not easily rid of. Apparently, my mom in law had one on her foot and she tried to remove it several times to no avail. I don't really have money for all that nonsense, nor the time to investigate so I was hoping maybe some of you bloggers out there might know of something helpful that I could try. I am going to try using the regular wort stuff with a band-aid over it so it doesn't wipe off. Here's hoping that works cause it's really annoying.

You must go to the doc. The only way to go. If you let it go, it can grow around your bone YIKERS!!

I'm sorry to hear that Noel, as they can be quite painful. Shontell is right, you must get this treated. A Plantar Wart is caused by the HPV virus and can easily spread. Don't walk around barefoot or share socks/shoes, etc.

Man, I feel for you . . .

it is a wArt. I had one of these long ago. Go to your doctor, they freeze it with liquid nitrogen (I think that is what they use), it is a simple procedure done right in the office. It will spread, so don't touch it.

I also had a plantar's wart when I was about 12--I had it frozen off and I have never seen the likes of it again...

great, thanks guys. so the general decision here is that i have to go to the doctors. blah!! i don't wanna!!
it's not that painful, just annoying. i wonder if after hearing all of you speak of them IF that is indeed what i have. hmm...mystery bump on my foot.

i do feel sorry for you. however you have used the word "wort" and the expression "pebble stone" in one post.

i like the idea of having parts of my body frozen by liquid nitrogen. that sounds pretty cool. even cooler when it's parts of your body instead of mine. let us know how that goes.
