First things first...the acronym in segment 2 is WDIDN...I am I missing something or shouldn't it be WWIDN? Primary comment is regarding the plantar warts. I don't know about you, but my typical plantar wart patient is the construction worker who comes in saying he has had this sore spot on his foot for a couple months, but today it was so bad he could not work. He is saying , "Fix it, so I can go back to work tomorrow!" This, of course, turns something fairly mundane into a real challenge. It obviously precludes any of the sequential treatments over several weeks - and prompted my to start telling them, "Well, I can't do that, but if you let me numb it up, do a deep conical/cylindrical excision and then thorough cautery, it will very likely be only a few days." So, that is what I do...I exchange the wart for a small third degree burn, and I have never had a dissatisfied customer - generally back to normal weight bearing in 48-72 hours, and healed in 2 weeks.
