Plantar Wart

Verruca Plantaris – Warts are caused by a virus affecting the skin, and a plantar wart (that is, a wart on the bottom of the foot) is no exception. These warts can grow deep into the skin and are sometimes mistaken for a callus. If a doctor discovers a plantar wart, which may or may not be painful, the usual treatments involve freezing the wart off, laser therapy, topical or oral medications, or surgery.
