A plantar wart is a condition that is caused by a virus. It may develop over a period of days, weeks or several months. The virus enters the body though a microscopic opening in the skin. Warts can appear anywhere but when they are found on the sole of the foot, they are called plantar warts. Warts can occur individually or in clusters, they range from very tiny to very large, from no pain to very painful.
Although anyone can get the virus that causes plantar warts, children tend to be more susceptible than adults.
