Plantar Warts!

Warts are a common viral infection of the skin. Plantar warts grow on the sole of the foot. The virus that causes warts, HPV-1, infects only the superficial layer of skin, producing a thickened callus-like growth that can become quite tender. Plantar warts often go away on their own, without treatment – about 60% of the time.
There are a few risk factors for plantar warts; public showers, previously damaged skin, and a weakened immune system.
Medical treatments usually involve applying chemicals to the skin that “burn” the wart off, as well as lasers, freezing, and surgery, all of which damage the skin.
