Most people will develop a wart at least once in their lifetime. Although there are different types of warts, those that develop on the soles of your feet and toes are called plantar warts.
Plantar warts are the result of a highly contagious viral infection of the skin—in this case, the invader is the human papillomavirus (HPV).
The virus enters the skin when we walk barefoot in common areas such as pools, gyms, spas, locker rooms, and hotel rooms. Any small crack, injury, or weakness in the surface of the skin is a viable entry point, whether you can see it or not.
