What are Plantar Warts?

We all know about warts that can grow on the hand, but how many have heard of warts of the feet? Doctor Paul Betschart here, and I would like to talk to residents of Danbury who may be experiencing foot pain about a condition called plantar warts. Plantar warts are one of the most common foot ailments today. However, they are often mistaken for corns or calluses. The condition develops most often at either the heel or ball area of the foot, and first appears as a crusted lump. If it is left to progress, it bores deeper into the flesh and becomes extremely tender and sore.

If you think you may be dealing with plantar warts, I encourage you to make an appointment to see me, at my office here in Danbury.
