Do you have warts on your feet but are unsure of what type of wart it is? We will be looking closely at plantar warts in this blog. Plantar warts can appear in a few different ways. One look that plantar warts take on is small, pinpoint, black spots on the bottom of your feet. Another appearance of plantar warts is in small, fleshy spots, sometimes interfering with the normal lines running through your feet. Foot pain can be commonly caused by plantar warts, but what is a PLANTAR wart? Plantar warts are warts commonly located on the heel and other weight bearing surfaces of the feet. Due to this constant pressure of standing and walking on these warts, they often move inward. OUCH! After moving inward, a layer of skin can develop on top, making them difficult to access. Another not so pleasant detail about plantar warts is that they are contagious! They can be spread easily in public spaces like gym showers, pools, yoga studios, bathrooms at your home, and even walking barefoot through airport security!
