Plantar Warts or Verucca

Warts: Description and their Symptoms

Plantars warts or Verucca are warts on the foot specifically the bottom of the foot. Anyone can contract the virus that causes warts. These highly contagious viruses are stubborn and can spread. Warts are a sneaky virus that hides itself from your bodies immune system. Warts appear as hard, tough skin similar to a callous or a corn with black pinpoints in the center. Depending on the location of a wart on the foot, it can become painful and mimic a callous or a corn. You may even think you have a splinter in your foot.

Like all viruses, they are contagious and can be spread from one person to another through showers, floors, and bedding. Warts of the feet are especially bad since the feet are enclosed in shoes which is a warm moist environment allowing them spread quickly.
