So I have had a pea sized weird looking patch on my heel, not the sole precisely but the area directly above what's being stepped on - like where you see in ads about cracked and dry heels. That part. So while I'm not walking directly on it, lately it has caused me some pain to step. I have never had warts before but I suspected it might be one and it seems it could be a plantar wart. It doesn't look horrifying like a lot of the ones on google, thank God. I'm actually nauseated now after googling it :(
Here's the deal, I want to use an effective home treatment regimen before I see a doctor about it. I don't usually have health insurance but right now I have pregnancy medicaid. I am due in two weeks. I'll need my feet to be strong and not tender while I'm giving birth so I'm afraid to do anything drastic before the birth (It seems that having them cut or frozen can leave people quite tender footed, not to mention potentially spread them!!). If I need to see a dr I have six weeks post partum before my medicaid expires so that is an option.
So what are some serious wart remedies that you have used with success? I am a barefoot person so my heels have natural calluses on them. I'm not particularly tenderfooted but the stuff I'm reading online about people soaking them w vinegar and cutting away at the skin day by day is making me want to hurl. The idea of scrubbing this area with a pumice stone is almost more than I can stand (I really dislike vibrations/scratching on my feet and hands, it took me until my 20's to be able to file my nails and I have to use a super soft board to do it...) I'm not afraid to cut my skin if that's what needs to happen but I can kind of feel when I step that this is a somewhat internal growth and I'm extremely grossed out and nauseated by all of this
I don't know what to do!! Help!
