Most foot warts are harmless to your health, though they may cause your pain. Often mistaken as a corn or callus, warts are caused by a viral infection and appear as a raised bump on the toes or feet. If left untreated, warts can increase in size and can spread into clusters.

Warts that develop on weight-bearing areas of the feet, such as the heel or ball of the foot, often cause a sharp, burning pain. As with any infectious lesion, warts spread by touching or scratching the affected area.

To prevent the spread of warts on your feet, follow these tips:

  • Avoid contact with the warts, both from your body and from other people
  • Avoid walking barefoot, especially on surfaces that can scratch or irritate your feet
  • Change your socks daily and keep your feet clean and dry
  • If you children show signs of warts, check their feet periodically

Contact Dr. Sheldon Fleishman if you suffer from warts and need relief from chronic pain caused by the warts – Overland Park: 913-381-5515 or Blue Springs: 816-228-9393.
