What is a plantar wart?
The virus responsible for the wart forming is the human papilloma virus (HPV). It typically is introduced into the body through a crack in the skin. Sometimes a single wart forms, but often it can spread, forming patches of two, three, and more warts together. In our Houston foot care practice we've seen patients with over one hundred warts on a foot. It is best not to ignore a wart and you should see your Houston foot specialist to treat it before it spreads.
