Plantar Warts Overview
Plantar (verrucae) warts affect the soles of the feet, especially the weight bearing regions. The pressure in these areas may also cause plantar warts to grow inwards underneath a thick, hard layer of skin known as a callus. These kind of warts are quite common, and many people will experience them at least once in their lives.
Not unlike other types of warts, plantar warts are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV), particularly strains 1, 2, 4, 60 and 63. The virus is known to attack the skin on the soles of the feet and enter the body through tiny breaks, cuts or other weak spots. Plantar warts are not a serious health concern and usually respond well to treatment.Shop Wartrin
