Plantar warts are small outgrowths on the feet caused by a human papillomavirus (HPV). 

They can infect any part of the foot, but normally appear at pressure points (generally on the soles of your feet or the heel). Plantar warts are usually benign and disappear by themselves in time, but they can also be painful and embarrassing. Treatments are available, and many people use products sold in pharmacies to get rid of their warts. To use these products effectively and safely, you must follow the directions, and be patient. However, if your wart doesn’t heal or gets worse, if it is very painful or changes in appearance or color, if you’re not sure whether it’s actually a wart, or if you have diabetes or other health problems, see a health professional before using these products.
