A wart is a benign skin lesion caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. The virus enters your body through tiny cuts or breaks in the skin. Warts can be found on non-pressure areas of the foot and ankle.

They also can appear on the weight bearing areas of your feet and are commonly referred to as plantar warts. Warts are often cosmetically unappealing and painful. They are easily mistaken for calluses so it it is important that they are evaluated by our podiatric physician.
