Why do plantar warts return in the same spot?

You manage to get the plantar wart removed but for some reasons, it came back, on the very same spot. Since you manage to remove the wart before, you are so confident that this time it is not going to be a problem for you to get the wart removed again. And you're correct, you manage to remove the wart for the second time.

Then, it started to get annoying. The plantar wart, that you manage to get rid of twice before, is back. And what make it worse, it came back on the very same spot as before. So what is happening? Why the wart keep coming back in the same spot even after you've successfully get it removed before?

To understand this, let take a look at the cause of plantar wart.

Plantar wart is cause by Human papillomavirus (HPV). Just like any other viruses, HPV is contagious.

Even after you successfully remove the warts, some of the HPV that cause the wart at the first place might had survive. The HPV that manage to survive has a potential to cause the wart to return. Since virus cannot be detected with our naked eyes, it is hard to tell whether there is still some HPV left after the wart is remove.

So what should I do? Did I need to remove the wart again and again and again?

Not necessarily, remember that wart usually form when our antibodies are week, keeping your antibodies strong could help to prevent plantar wart from occurring. So, one of the things that you can do is to build a strong antibodies to fight the virus.

It is very frustrating when plantar wart keep return. Some people go to the doctor to get the wart removed yet it still coming back. The wart might return due to some of the HPV that might have been left. Building a strong antibodies might help to solve this problem.
