Plantar Wart Causes and Symptoms

Plantar warts are basically viral infections caused by HPV on the soles of your feet. Small cuts or breaks in the skin can allow the virus entrance and room to grow. The HPV virus thrives in moist, warm environments, like in your socks and shoes on a hot day, so you need to keep your feet clean, dry, and cool.

It’s easy to pick up plantar warts in public places like pools, beach bathrooms, and gym locker rooms without shower shoes or flip flops.

When you do notice these warts, you’ll probably see small, rough growths on the bottom of your foot. Or, if the wart has grown inward, you’ll see a callus. You might also see black pinpoints or a lesion, or you might notice pain when you stand or walk. When you start to feel pain, you should come to us for professional plantar wart removal and treatment.
