Understanding Plantar Warts -- Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Plantar Warts?

The symptoms of plantar warts include:

  • Small, bumpy growths on the soles of the feet, sometimes with tiny black dots on the surface
  • Pain in the soles of the feet when standing or walking

Call Your Doctor About Plantar Warts If:

  • The area becomes red, hot, painful, and tender after treatment; an infection may have set in.
  • You are unsure whether you have a plantar wart or another condition, such as a corn, callus, mole, or skin lesion. Most such growths are harmless, but some can become problematic.
