5 products that actually work to get rid of your warts and verrucas on feet

Its that time of year again when i start getting messages and call about treating warts and verruca on patients feet.

Always when the weather starts cheering up people begin to book holidays and start thinking about being outdoors more and wearing sandals and flip flops and then realise……

Whats this nasty thing on my foot!

Well good chance its a verruca or wart or if you are lucky a corn!

In this blog post I’m going to cut to the chase and tell you the Chiropodists methods and what the industry uses to rid of warts and verrucas on feet

*** BONUS TIP***

Increase your vitamin c and zinc intake when treating warts and verruca on feet, this increases your immune system and puts your body in a healthy state.

5 Products that I use that work on my patients


warts and verrucas on feet
Available from your local pharmacy,
Salactol is a salicylic acid based topical treatment that is a firm favourite in the Podiatry world.

Its a little messy to apply especially as they have changed the applicator stick to a flat spatula!

But this treatment really works and for me probably my runner up after the amoils treatment.

Apply carefully daily to the warts and verrucas on your feet and allow to dry really well!

The solution will over a few days build up so you will need to file down with an emery board or pumice stone to ensure the treatment continues to penetrate to the wart.

Once a week i would apply a piece of tape and leave on over night and then rip it off! this will pull out the dead calloused verruca and build up of the solution.

2#H warts amoils

I love the Amoils treatment for warts and verrucas,

I have found over the last 10 years many patients just do not respond to the old fashion treatments of burning or freezing out their warts and verrucas.

But they are responding to all natural essential oils which contain marigold, tea tree , wheat germ …….

Im not sure if its because the body has not encounter theses oils before and have become immune to medicated treatments.

What ever the answer is all i know is that i get the best and quickest results using all natural products.

3#Duct tape / leukoplast tape

 Can duct tape really get rid of warts and verrucas?

Well yes it can and in a recent study of 100 patients it was more successful then cryosurgery (freezing) treatments of verrucas.

Its super simple and a cheap treatment option!

Cut of a piece of tape apply and leave for 4-5 days .

Remove and reapply until the warts core has been drawn out.

4#tea tree oil

Always go for the bigger bottle! 10 or 30 choose 30ml as its amazing how fast you go through tea tree.

Tea tree is an all natural essential oil that works it magic for many conditions,

Tea tree will work fast on small or new warts and verrucas especially on your hands.

Apply 2 times a day and it may be worth applying a plaster after a few days to help extract the dead skin of the wart.

Tea tree for warts and verruca on feet is a good choice for children,

Also for people who are unhappy applying medicated or acid based treatments,

as it does not burn or damage the skin on application.

5#Bazuka that verruca

Good old Bazuka that verruca !

Always found in supermarkets and chemists this acid based gel treatment i believe is still a good choice for verrucas and warts on feet of children.

It does work well but careful application is needed by a parent to ensure the acid gel does not run and damage the skin around the wart.

Application should be done 1-2 times a day and the acid will burn away at the calloused skin and kill of the wart at its root.

I would personally recommend a plaster is also applied after application for two reasons!

1: The acid if not 100% dry will burn and discolour socks and carpets!

2: The plaster will assist in drawing out the verrucas root.


So there you have I’ve given you the best 5 proven treatments i can actually say that will get rid of warts and verrucas on your feet.

Now you’ve got the knowledge go out there today and start getting your feet ready for summer now.

Read This Gehwol Nail and Skin Cream Review


Gehwol Nail and Skin Cream Review…. Whats best the cream or the oil.


I have been using Gehwol products since 2001 on my patients and by far their range of foot creams and sprays really are the best on the market for foot problems.

My 4 favourite gehwol products i would 100% recommend include:

Gehwol Blue
For every day footcare, diabetes,dry skin and prevents bacteria infections

Gehwol Nail & Skin Oil/Cream
To cure fungal infections of the nail and skin

Gehwol Deodorant
Perfect to cure hot sweaty smelly Feet

Gehwol Red
This cream is used on cold feet it naturally increases the circulation and warmth to the feet.

How to get the best results when treating  toenail fungus.

If you are suffering from the early stages of toenail fungus then i would recommend either product to you.

But i believe the cream works faster.

The reason for this is because the cream is rubbed into the nail and skin around the toe and penetrates well into the toe ,

where the oil is dropped onto and around the toenails and soaks into the skin rather then being rubbed in.

How long will it take for the fungus to improve?

Im afraid i just can’t tell you this, every case is different,

But i will say within a month of using a toenail fungus product you will begin to see an improvement,

the nail will become pinker and healthier looking, and loose dry callus around the nail will have fallen off and the toenail will be easier to cut.

Daily application is required for the long haul when treating fungus.

Twice a day without fail is required.

1 Important factor to success

Foot hygiene is so important when treating bacterial fungal infections.

Washing your feet , changing your socks, throwing away old many shoes which contain bacteria.

If you suffer from athletes foot which is one of the causes of fungus treat the infection.

Simple daily foot care will speed up the healing process.

How to cure runner’s heel pain with 3 easy tips


How to cure runner’s heel pain with 3 easy tips


If you love to run but struggle with heel pain during or after each run then try these 3 easy tips to cure runner’s heel pain

The most common injury to the heels is called plantar fasciitis which is when the fascia tissue in the heel becomes inflamed from injury or trauma.

When you run a lot of weight and pressure is put through the ankle and foot and even with professional running shoes injuring the heel is a VERY common injury.

I suggest to my patients to do these 3 things when then exercise, not only will they strengthen the foots muscles and tissue but prevent  injuries returning.

Tip 1 : Epsom Salt Soaks

Simple simple simple !! Epsom salts are magnesium based salts which have been used by athletes for years, and a old Chiropodist secret weapon.

Epsom Salts will
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Ease fatigued aching muscles
  • Relax and relieve tension in the tendons and ligaments

Tip 2 : Cold Water Bottle Stretches

My favourite tip !! Grab a cold (ideally iced) bottle of water and place under the arch of the foot.

Apply pressure and roll backwards and forth up and down the foot from the heel to the toes. Repeat for 3-5 minutes .

You want to feel the pressure and a little pain but do not press to hard!

Cold water stretches will…
  • Stretches out the tight fascia band and tissue
  • Relax the tense muscles
  • Reduce inflammation within the heel area

Tip 3: How to cure runners heel with Vitamins & Minerals .

The best 3 vitamins and minerals to help heel pain are:

1# Magnesium

Signs your body need is low on Magnesium

Low energy
Weak bones
Muscle tension, cramps, spasms
Low energy

Additional magnesium deficiency may include constipation, vertigo,stiff and achy muscles.

2# Vitamin B5

Benefits of Vitamin B5

Improves cardiovascular health
Lowers Cholesterol
Maintains a healthy nerve function
Metabolises our food into energy
Helps our mental health
Reduces our stress
Assists healing
Helps rheumatoid arthritis
Boosts our immune system
Improves our skin including preventing or curing acne

3# Proteolytic Enzymes

These enzymes support our immune system and acts as a anti- inflammation agent and helps reduces inflamed sports injuries and traumas to the body. They are used to treat auto immune diseases such as lupus , rheumatoid arthritis and by increases your proteolytic enzymes intake you can see how it assists the healing of the fascia tissue and your general muscle and joint pain heel.

My Personal Recommendation For Additional Protection When Training

Wearing the footwear and support of course is a no brainer but i have found even with good running shoes if your foots biomechanics are put under stress and pressure such as if you have a high arch or a flat foot then you are more likely to suffer from injuries.

I have been working with runners locally and i have found that the best solution to avoid injury and strengthen weak feet is to use a “silicone gel” orthotic insert within the running shoes.

Silicone gel is soft but durable to high impact pressure as you run and does not loose its structure or strength quickly like leather and foam insoles.

What works for plantar fasciitis

Solving the mystery of the best cure for plantar fasciitis is a tricky one, and what works for one maybe doesn’t for another.

But what i have found over the last 12 years of treating patients with heel pain is that a combination of therapies works the best with the fastest results.

Buying a heel pain relief insert and hoping the fascia tissue will heal by itself with time just won’t cut it I’m afraid.

It is very important that the heel and the tissue and tendons are strengthened as they repair to prevent a repetitive strain and the plantar fasciitis returning.

Which is not what we want!

Researching for inserts and insoles to help heel pain relief for plantar fasciitis in your feet can be a bit over whelming.

Choices to make!

Your first decision to make is what type of orthotic should you choose

    • 3/4 Length insole
    • Full length inserts
    • Heel cushions/ Pads
    • Heel sleeves or socks


3/4 Length Insoles

These are insoles that support the heel and also arches of the foot.
Personally i believe these and heel cushions are the best choice for heel pain especially if you are looking for pain relief at work or if you play sports.

3/4 insoles are pretty handy if you want to alternate them into different shoes and trainers.

Full length Inserts

Full length inserts support the whole foot so the heel , arches, ball of foot and toes are cushioned and aligned comfortably.

More suitable for work shoes and boots they are excellent if you suffer from arch or ball of foot pain too or flat footed.

Heel Cushions/ Pads

Heel cushions/pads simply support the heel area of the foot and are easily transferable to different shoes and trainers.  Then are well padded and are a good choice if you stand a lot at work or do running or hiking.

If you can get one that is cupped around the edge as this supports the spur area too.

Heel sleeves or socks

Heel sleeves and socks are great for cushioning the heel area and helping reduce inflammation.  They do not take up much space in shoes so good if you want extra protection when running or at the gym.


Strengthen, Heal, Prevention Treatment

The course of action i recommend to my patients is to not just use inserts to cushion and stop the heel pain.

This works, don’t get me wrong.

But you have to also repair the damaged fascia band and reduce the inflammed tissue as well as strengthening the foot to prevent reoccurrence of plantar fasciitis.

I have found these three things work the best….

1: Use an orthotic insole for all day comfort

I recommend to my patients to use either a 3/4 insole or a heel cup cushion as i believe these offer the best comfort to the inflamed heel fascia tissue.

Both will have a centre part of the insole which will have a thicker pad to cushion the middle of the heel where the pain penetrates from.

But if you suffer from flat feet and or fallen arches you may prefer to use a full length insert.

All are transferable to different shoes but i would recommend you use two pairs and keep one set for trainers and the other for your work shoes.

2 : Do specific plantar fasciitis stretches to strengthen the fascia band

Stretching, and strengthening the foots biomechanical structure stops reoccurrence episodes of plantar fasciitis.

It also is a key treatment to healing the fascia band and ligaments around the heel to full recovery.

The best strengthening exercises for plantar fasciitis include:

  • Rolling a cold bottle or golf ball under the foots arch from heel to toe. Pressing firmly on the bottle. This stretches out the fascia band.
  • Tree balance. this is when you balance on one foot for 20-30 seconds a time.

Calf stretches , leaning towards the wall stretch the heel and calf muscles out.

3: Vitamins & Minerals

Increase the bodies natural healing process by taking Vitamins B5 pantsthenic acid , Magnesium and Bromelain.

Read related post: The Best Vitamins and minerals to help heel pain

You can of course increase these vitamins and minerals through intake of foods but the fastest and cheaper way is to purchase vitamin supplements.

Taking these vitamins will help:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Encourage heeling
  • Reduce muscle fatigue
  • Energy levels
  • Muscle cramps
  • Burning feet
  • Inflammation
  • Reduces stress on the body and its muscles and ligaments



What is the best cure for plantar fasciitis – Self help tips for pain relief

Do you suffer everyday from a sharp intense burning in your heels?

what is the best cure for plantar fasciitis

I have had plantar fasciitis in my left heel a few years ago, it came over after i began exercising on a treadmill

getting fit!    I thought…..

But actually i over pounded and caused inflammation to my fascia tissue in my heels that caused the medical term plantar fasciitis…… simply heel pain.

I found after a day at work my feet were feeling inflamed, tender and totally frazzled.

So living with the daily pain i researched what is the best cure for plantar fasciitis and i found it involved three factors.

  • Strengthening
  • Restoring my  muscle naturally
  • Preventative measures

When i got home a great relief was to soak my feet in a bowl of warm water with epsom salts for 15-20 minutes and this helped ease the aching and tiredness the pain was causing.

But the sharp intense pain soon returned when i started walking about barefoot again and in the morning it was definitely worse.

I increased my Vitamin B5 , Magnesium , and Bromelian intake and personally i believe this alone made a massive difference by boosting my immune and healing agents in my body which fastened up the process of curing my heel pain.

Here`s what you are going to learn in this post

  • Fast facts about Plantar Fasciitis
  • Vitamins that can help cure plantar fasciitis

Fast Facts about plantar fasciitis include……….

The Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis can be the result of several different conditions. Some of the more common include standing for long periods of time, poor running form, ill-fitting shoes, over-pronation of the foot, poor arch support and misalignment of the foot when walking. Obesity can place extra stress loads on the plantar fascia, and in this instance losing weight can help the condition considerably.


Most people start to notice pain at the bottom of the foot, especially when they first get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes this pain subsides throughout the day, but in many cases the pain is fairly constant.

In addition, Plantar Fasciitis symptoms may include:

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Redness
  • Itching

Treatment Options

Treating Plantar Fasciitis symptoms is dependent on a number of factors. First, it’s important to identify the root cause of the condition and address it. For some, this may be fairly obvious. For example, if you have gained weight recently, then this may be the culprit. In some cases, orthotic shoes may provide some relief from maligned feet.

R.I.C.E. is an acronym that stands for Rest, Icepack application, Compression and Elevation. This is the first management step for Plantar Fasciitis and can be performed at home. If pain is particularly acute when you exercise, then you should rest and avoid walking or working out until the pain subsides.

Another effective treatment option for Plantar Fasciitis is stretching. This might involve stretching the plantar fascia itself or the calf muscle as well. Calf stretches have been medically proven to help patients with Plantar Fasciitis.

When it comes to stretching there are a number of options available, each designed to address a different aspect of the condition. Stretching helps relieve pressure, strengthen the muscles of the leg and foot, and allows the plantar fascia to heal. Most stretches are conducted for between 15 and 30 seconds 4 or 5 times.
