What Causes Plantar Warts?

Hello, this is Doctor Rodriguez, your favorite podiatrist in Sioux Falls. During our last session, we talked about plantar warts and how to identify them. Today, I want to tell you about what causes them.

As surprising as it may seem, plantar warts are the result of the human papilloma virus, also known as HPV. HPV commonly grows in wet and warm areas, such as bathrooms and locker rooms and is contracted through cuts, abrasions and breaks in the skin.

If you think that you might have developed plantar warts, it is important to see a foot doctor right away. I encourage you to see me, Doctor Rodriguez, at my office here in Sioux Falls. Click here to read my full report about plantar warts: http://siouxfallspodiatrist.net/plantars
