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.

                                                Page 2

   Usually people are unaware they have
    contracted plantar warts until the become
    painful. Plantar warts will initially have black
    pin points in the lesion. Texture can be rough
    and scaly. The growth of a plantar wart will
    also be well defined.
   Plantar warts can sometimes be confused with
    corns and calluses.



                                                  Page 4
   As previously mentioned plantar warts are
    caused by the HPV strain 1 or 2. These are
    highly contagious viruses that enter the skin
    through small cuts or abrasions on the sole of
    the foot. HPV thrives in a warm moist
    environment.




                                                 Page 5
   Plantar warts are treated a number of ways but
    can eventually go away without treatment.
   If the lesions are to painful to ignore they can
    be treated:
   Surgically
   Cryogenicaly
   Chemically
   Electrically
   Laser Therapy
