What is Verrucae or Foot Wart?
Plantar warts or verrucae are warts appearing on the soles of your feet, which in most cases are extremely painful, sore, and bothersome, requiring removal. Being slightly different from common warts, verrucae mostly affect children and teens but can appear in adults as well.
Verrucae are caused by the HPV or Human Papillomavirus strains 1.2.4 and 63. Highly contagious, plantar warts in particular, and any type of wart for that matter, can be transmitted through direct or indirect contact, from one person to another, or from one area of the body to another, personal hygiene being thus of utmost importance.
Plantar warts or verrucae are also caused by high-risk factors such as skin trauma, use of public showers, or a weakened immune system due to the use of certain medications or illnesses.
