Should I get my plantar wart injected again?

Author: Dr. Bobby Buka

Usually, the best way for me to tell whether a wart has gone away is to if I see the palm lines on the surface of the skin, called dermatoglyphics, cross over the area that was once infected.

Just as a fortune teller can read your future by the lines on your palms – when you see these lines cross over an area that used to be infected with the wart, that informs me that the normal tissue has returned to that area. If there’s still interruption of the dermatoglyphics, then it’s worth seeking follow-up care.
