Plantar warts are growths on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of the feet. Looking for plantar wart treatment in the Culver City area? Dr. J. Leonard Knudson provides multiple forms of foot wart treatment for our patients.
Plantar Warts, Causes and Treatments
These warts on the feet are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), which enters the body through tiny cuts, breaks or other vulnerable areas on the bottom of the feet. Pressure can cause these plantar warts to grow inward under a thick layer of skin or callus. The virus can be spread easily by human contact. Aside from the feet, warts also form on the hands and the genital region (condyloma). When they occur under a fingernail or toenail, they are called periungual warts.
