Numbness from Plantar Wart?


I have been receiving treatment for a deep rooted plantar wart. After multiple laser and strong acid treatments half of the wart has been removed. However, I have been getting numbness in the area(ball of foot) of the wart to the toe region when I run, usually after 25 minutes. I am scheduled next week for another laser treatment. Why I am getting this numbness?
I want to get back to competitive running hopefully soon.


  1. As a point of information, warts do not have deep roots. They are strictly epidemal. Due to the fact that the skin on the bottom of the foot is thick, the wart appears thicker. Why you have numbness is difficult for me to answer as I can not see where the wart is located. Surely your doctor can answer this.
