Plantar Warts (Papilloma)
Plantar warts are lesions that usually appear on the soles of the feet, with a greater tendency to weight-bearing areas such as the heel or the metatarsal area and that can be painful or asymptomatic (60% painful).
They usually have a hardened layer of dead skin (callus) on top that makes them complex to differentiate if you are not a specialist in this field.
They are lesions caused by human papillomavirus infection. This virus enters the body through small cuts, cracks, wounds on the soles of the feet and can remain in the host’s body for up to 6 months without developing.
