All About Plantar Warts

By Michael Sanford

Some of us still believe with the old folk tale, that you will get some warts when you touched a toad. Don't you know that when you take a public shower or simply when you just walk around bare footed will possibly increase the plantar warts in your feet? When your feet perspire and the moisture is trapped, the plantar warts spread out in the area of the foot, in which they increase in size and have their babies. These could be some of the possible reasons why some of us have plantar warts.

Well, some of us are not aware of these plantar warts. Plantar warts are just the common skin infection on the bottom side of our foot. Most teenagers have warts and these plantar warts are cause by the virus that usually enters the body through a break in the skin. The virus of the plantar warts often grows in warm, moist environments. It could be difficult for you to determine the plantar warts from the calluses, in which plantar warts can erupt anywhere on a particular foot. Anyhow, the plantar warts have tiny black dots on the surface layer, where these are the ends of the capillary blood vessels. While the calluses have no blood vessels and usually resemble a yellow candle, wax and are located only over the weight bearing areas of the foot which are perpetually irritated. Since plantar warts are soft tissue condition of the foot, they can too be painful. Since the virus can interfere the skin through those small and invisible cuts and scuff, the warts can appear anywhere on the skin, but those who are on the sole are only suitably called as plantar warts.

The plantar warts appear to be hard, flat, with its rough surface, and well-defined boundaries. They warts are commonly raised and fleshier every time they appear on the top of the foot or on the toes. The color of the plantar warts sometimes varies. They are often gray or brown, with a center that appears as one or more pinpoints of black. Some people used to walk barefoot on dirty surfaces or littered ground, which they don't even think that those viruses are waylaying. If the plantar warts are not treated well, the warts can possibly spread out to an inch or more in circumference and can multiply into clusters of several warts, often called the mosaic warts. Plantar warts are a kind of infectious lesions, where it can be spread through scratching, touching, or even by having contact with skin shed from another wart. The bleeding of the warts may cause another plot to create other warts.

Even though warts are harmless, they too are painful. However, the first thing that you should do if they are painful is to seek treatment. You should consult for the best physician that carefully will trim the warts, and will apply a chemically treated dressing. Usually, the physician gives the patient of the plantar warts some information for him to follow for a self-care. The salicylic acid patches are required to be applied on a daily basis, and having proper foot hygiene includes the regular use of the burnish stone so to free your feet from the plantar warts. Nevertheless, sometimes, it may take a few weeks for the entire plantar warts to disappear. There are some instances that the plantar warts are develop on the weight bearing of the foot, particularly on the ball of the foot, or the heel, which sometimes causes to be the source of a sharp and burning pain. The pain usually occurs when the weight is brought directly on the wart. If possible, the treatment is required to be repeated regularly until the plantar warts are impaired. Though plantar warts disappear after a short time, they can recur too in the same location, frequently.

Everyone must take some prevention to avoid having the warts on our body, or having the plantar warts on our feet. You should prevent walking barefooted, but except on sandy beaches. It is required to change your shoes or your socks everyday, and must keep your feet clean and dry always. Checking the feet of your children habitually is one way of practicing their personal hygiene too. If possible, you should avoid having a direct contact with warts, or from other persons who have warts on the body, so to assure of having a hygienic body. Growths on, or some changes in your skin should not be ignored. Have some time to visit your podiatric physician.
