Say hello to SWIFT.

Treatment now available


Are you tired of dealing with pesky warts? We at The Alfa Doc are very excited to announce that we have a brand new and effective treatment for surface based skin lesions, primarily warts.

Plantar warts; a common and stubborn Viral Infection

“Plantar” means “Of the sole” in Latin. Unlike other types of warts, plantar warts are typically quite painful as the pressure from walking and standing forces them to grow into your skin. Like all warts, Plantar warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus, specifically types 1, 2, 4, 60, and 63. Underneath the skin, the wart can have finger-like roots that reach down and grow, making them very difficult to treat effectively from the surface.

How effective is Swift?

Due to Swift harnessing the power of the patient’s immune system to target the root cause of the wart (HPV), efficacy is significantly higher compared to other treatment methods. For more information on Swift and how it compares to traditional methods, visit Wart Treatment Info.

When you should come to see us

It’s important to visit a podiatrist if you suspect or feel that you have a plantar wart and are seeking removal. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the more likely the wart is to persist. Here are some common symptoms to look out for:

  • You may get the feeling of “painful pebbles” in your shoes.

  • You may experience pain when you compress the sides of the wart.

  • You may see a circular flat spot on the skin with a depressed area in the middle.

  • They may appear “yellowed” with a crust; small black dots can be an easy give away.

  • The lesion on your foot is painful, bleeding, or has changed color.

  • Treatments you have tried do not work, and the wart reoccurs or multiplies.

  • Discomfort that prevents you from doing regular activities.

  • Poor sensation in your feet.

  • You are unsure if the lesion is a wart.
