Plantar Warts

Sometimes, growths on the bottom of your feet that look like dry, hardened skin are not corns or calluses—they are warts.

Plantar warts have a similar appearance to corns and calluses. However, these small bumps are more painful and can cause you significant grief. The small nerve endings that are active below the skin can cause you pain when you apply pressure.

Treating your warts is easy. There are over-the-counter treatments, such as bandages or freezing agents, which are successful in some cases. If those do not work, you should seek treatment from Dr. Lockwood!
