Should I just go to a pharmacy and buy an over-the-counter plantar wart treatment, instead of seeing a foot doctor?

You can try it, but it is not advised by most physicians. The over-the-counter treatments can cause inflammation, infection, or make the warts spread even more. Misuse of certain over-the-counter plantar wart medicines can result in chemical skin burns. Your foot doctor at Healthmark Foot and Ankle will know the best and the most effective treatments for your particular plantar wart case.
