How to Run With Plantar Warts
Wash and dry your foot that has the plantar wart before running. Minimize moisture by using dry or synthetic material socks. Use a moisture reducing or absorbent powder.
Wash your hands after treating the plantar wart; plantar warts can be contagious. Walking barefoot on wet shower or changing room floors can spread plantar warts--use sandals or socks.
Use blister treatments that can be found in local convenience or drug stores. These treatments include corn pads, moleskin, Band-Aid Blister Blocks, and other similar treatments. The treatment material should be placed in a 2-inch circle centered by the plantar wart. If the treatment material is painful to remove, you should cut out the center of the material so the plantar wart is not covered.
Use an emery board to sand off the top of plantar wart. This technique reduces the pressure on the wart when you run.
Run with duct tape over the plantar wart. Even recommended by some medical professionals, duct tape will cushion the plantar wart, lowering the pain, and also may, over time, destroy the plantar wart by starving it of air and nutrients. Runners who use duct tape leave the tape on the plantar wart one or two weeks.
