Plantar Warts

Plantar warts are warts of the sole or plantar surface, of the foot. Since plantar warts are under pressure they grow inward causing pain. Plantar warts can be differentiated from a simple callus by characteristic dark specks (thrombosed capillaries) in the centre. If shaved, these punctate marks will show pinpoint bleeding. Plantar warts are caused by a virus (human papilloma virus) and as such are contagious. Gym users who go barefoot and do not use rubber sandals in the showers get more plantar warts. The virus is usually found in moist wet areas such as locker rooms, showers, gyms, or poolsides.
