What are plantar warts?

Hard, grainy growths that appear on the heels or balls of the feet are typically known as plantar or palmar warts. They are noncancerous skin growths, caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin.

Do they need to be removed?

Warts can be contagious and cause irritation or minor pain, depending on their location. Even if a wart is not painful, it can be unsightly, making patients self­-conscious.

How do I know if I have a wart?

A wart should not be confused with a corn or callus. If you think you might be suffering from warts, make an appointment with Dr. Kruse for a diagnosis and full range of treatment options.
