Plantar warts are rugged lesions that are well circumscribed, generally raised up, localized on the sole of the foot. They are caused by the human papilloma virus, which penetrates the skin directly either at pressure points or wherever there is a foot injury. They are contagious lesions that appear alone or in a mosaic, that is, in small clusters
Podiatrists may use one of several methods to treat warts: application of acid, liquid nitrogen, or another antiwart product; injection of medication; laser cauterization.
When plantar warts are rebellious and resist the usual forms of treatment, a surgical removal may be necessary.
