What are Plantar Warts?
Plantar Warts are benign skin lesions that are a result of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). They can appear as single lesions or in clusters of lesions. They are contagious and can be picked up from places like:
- Communal swimming pools
- Communal bathrooms
- Any communal areas where there is moisture and warmth
Plantar warts may or may not be painful when walking however it is common for warts to hurt when squeezed with sideways pressure.
