Understanding Plantar Warts -- Prevention
How Can I Prevent Plantar Warts?
Protect yourself against exposure to the virus that causes plantar warts by wearing shower shoes, thongs, or rubber swimming shoes whenever you visit a public pool or use a communal shower. Be sure to wash your feet thoroughly with a disinfectant soap after being in an area where the virus can spread. If you get pedicures, always be cautious about the sterilization techniques of your pedicurist.
