For the second time in three months, we've had to have a plantar wart burned from the bottom of Kayla's right foot. It's just a regular old wart, but since it grows on the bottom (plantar) side of the foot, it's painful because it gets pushed up into the foot and can feel like there's a pebble in your shoe. The doctor took nitrous oxide and burned the spot while we slowly counted to 20. They did this in October, too, but it didn't work.
Our instructions now are to go home, pumice off the skin, apply Compound W, then a bandaid, a pad, then DUCT TAPE. We have to seal the tape around the edges of everything well so air doesn't get in, and leave it oh, three weeks or so. (We should change everything every three days, just because.)
Imagine my delight.
During the time the darn thing has been hurting, Kayla nicknamed the wart. He's a plantar wart so his name is, obviously, Farmer Joe. We held a farewell party for him in the office just before the Big Burn.
