unusual wart


I am a 25 year old male. I have had a wart under my right foot (heel) and has been there since I was 8.
I have been treating it ever since, so about 17 years. The treatment is basically removing skin on top, freezing, putting on either Verucid, ARPAC or Karbamid and a silicon plaster. I have also done a laser surgery. Nothing works.
The wart is still there, and has a size of about 3 cm radius. The wart has also spread around my feet as small warts.

I really need to know if there are some other alternative treatments. All help is very much appriciated.

For small warts, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.

In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get this wart evaluated.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
