Types: Plantar Warts

Plantar Warts

These warts are called plantar warts because they appear on the sole of the foot that is called the plantar surface. These warts do not appear grown up because of the foot pressure on them and a large part enters the insides. But the warts have no roots and grow on the outer surface (epidermis) of the foot skin. These warts are called as mosaic warts when they grow in a cluster. These warts feel like a stone in the shoe and pain while walking. The black dot seen on the top of the plantar warts is not the root but the blood vessel that supplies blood to the warts.
