How to Get Rid of Plantar Warts (Verrucas)
Warts are small and thick benign growths on the skin that are caused by human papillomavirus or HPV. Plantar warts occur on the bottom of the foot, which makes them very uncomfortable to walk on — it feels like there is a stone in your shoe. They are often on the area of your feet that experiences the most pressure, which may drive the wart to grow flat but deeper under the skin. Most of the time plantar warts do not require the care or treatment of a physician. Following a few simple steps at home you can treat the warts you have and prevent more from occurring.
