WARTS


Warts are one of the several lesser afflictions of the foot, which nevertheless can be quite painful. They are caused by a virus, which typically invades the skin through small cuts and abrasions. They are frequently called plantar warts, because they appear most often on the plantar surface, or sole of the foot. 

Children, especially teenagers, tend to be more susceptible to warts than adults, while some people seem to be immune, and never get them. It is possible that your podiatrist will wish to use a wart-removal preparation. More likely, removal of warts by simple surgical procedure will be indicated.

The plantar wart is often contracted by walking barefoot on dirty surfaces or littered ground where the virus is lurking.

When plantar warts develop on the weight-bearing areas of the feet--the ball of the foot, or the heel, for example--they can be the source of very sharp, burning pain.
