Foot Wart - Podiatrist in Saginaw, Bay City and Essexville, MI - Andrew Cohen, DPM
- Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center / Diabetic Foot Center
Podiatrist Dr. Andrew Cohen of Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center / Diabetic Foot Center discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Foot Warts (Plantar Warts).
Plantar warts, also known as verrucas, appear on the soles of the feet and are one of several soft tissue conditions that can be quite painful. Unlike other foot warts, plantar warts tend to be hard and flat, with a rough surface and well-defined boundaries. They are often gray or brown (but the color may vary), with a center that appears as one or more pinpoints of black. Plantar warts are often contracted by walking barefoot on dirty surfaces or littered ground. The virus that causes plantar warts thrives in warm, moist environments, making infection a common occurrence in public pools and locker rooms.
