More on Warts

You develop warts when a virus, called human papilloma virus (HPV), infects your foot. Warts are usually small growths on the skin and appear on the plantar side of your foot, which is essentially the bottom.

Plantar warts grow deep into the skin. Wart sizes vary, but they start small and become larger over time.

Types of Warts

The two types of warts are a solitary wart, which is when a single wart starts increasing in size and number, and mosaic wart, which are clusters of warts growing near each other.

Diagnosis Process
