Infection typically occurs on moist walking surfaces such as
showers, swimming pools, or shoes. The virus can survive many
months without a host, making it highly contagious.
Plantar warts are benign epithelial tumors caused by
infection by human papilloma virus types 1, 2, 4, or 63. These
types are classified as clinical (visible symptoms). The virus
attacks the skin through direct contact, entering through
possibly tiny cuts and abrasions in the stratum corneum
(outermost layer of skin). After infection, plantar warts may
not become visible for several weeks or months.
Because of pressure on the sole of the foot, the wart is
pushed inward and a layer of hard skin may form over the wart.
These warts can be painful if left untreated.Warts may spread
through autoinoculation, by infecting nearby skin or by
infecting walking surfaces. Plantar warts may also spread to
other parts of the body.They may fuse or develop into clusters
called mosaic warts.
