Thank you for asking your question and having the foresight to enclose a photograph.
I examined the photograph and this appears to be a large plantar wart.
It would be prudent to consult your physician as the longer the delay, the more difficult it would be to remove.
I can not absolutely rule out a verrucous carcinoma. However, these are cute rare, and not very aggressive. I strongly favor a plantar wart.
Is it possible to be a plantar wart if its itchy and liquid was coming out of it?
It is possible that there is a slight infection.
There appear to be little wart like areas near the main lesion.
That is what steered me to that diagnosis.
I've also been to the spa in the magnesium salt water and after that i had little plantar warts on my hands, do you think that could be related?
Certainly. You also may have picked up the virus at the spa.
Thank you very much could you recommend me a treatment and an easy way how to get rid of it?
I would combine cryotherapy after curettage from you rphysician with an at home nightly treatment with Occlusal HP.
So do i need to go see a doctor to cut it out?
I would thinks so, yes. This looks pretty large.
You casn start Occlusal at home
And i can get occlusal from a normal shop can't i?
Yes....or an equivalent.
Someting containing a high percentage of salicylic acid
Thank you very much
