Request Appointment Professional in Home Foot Care

A plantar wart will resemble a callus on the bottom of your foot. Generally it will be located in the ball or heel areas of your foot. Depending on the location of the wart there may be some sort of pain present. Some will have what looks like a small hole or concaved center. You could have one lonely wart or you could have clusters of them.

a plantar wart is a viral skin infection on the bottoms of your feet that is caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). To reduce the chances of plantar warts try to avoid walking barefoot in public places. Especially places that contain and hold moisture (showers, pools, lockers rooms, ect.)

Plantar warts as with common warts if left untreated will eventually go away on there own.
