Warts, raised bumps on the skin caused by a virus, can appear as easily on your feet as any other part of the body. Your soles are especially susceptible to a unique condition known as a plantar wart. These warts are flat, thick, and hard, and may be mistaken for a callus or scar tissue.
Most foot warts are harmless, but they are highly contagious and can be irritating. People with plantar warts may experience pain while walking, and not treating the wart can cause it to grow and spread. To get your warts treated, come into one of the Advanced Foot and Ankle Centers of Illinois offices in the Chicago area.
