What is a Plantar Wart?
Plantar warts are non-cancerous skin outgrowths on feet that are caused due to a viral infection on the topmost layer of the skin. In medical terms, they are known as “Verrucas”. Plantar warts can be really irritating sometimes.
It is a usual problem that can occur to anybody. Plantar warts are brown or black, hard and flat or bumpy growths that mostly occur on the soles of the feet. They may also appear in clusters and are known as mosaic warts.
These are harmless and usually go away themselves in a few days, but in some cases, warts can turn out to be too painful to tolerate, and may need immediate treatment. In comparison to adults, children get more prone to this problem.
