Causes, Risk and Treatment
   Plantar warts are hard warts that often develop
    on the sole of the foot. Plantar warts are
    caused by the human papillomavirus
    (HPV), strains that are most often the cause of
    plantar warts are type 1 & 2 HPV. These
    strains are contagious and are spread from
    person to person via direct contact with the
    virus. Plantar warts differ from other
    warts, due to the pressure exerted on the sole
    of the foot from walking or standing plantar
    warts will grow deep inside the skin.

    environment.
