Plantar warts are well delineated lesions in the plantar skin of the feet and often present characteristic small black points. They are the result of a viral infection with the human papillomavirus that penetrates the surface layers of the skin causing occasional pain.

The infection is often contracted in public places (swimming pool, gym, hotel, etc.) and affects mostly people with moist skin. The treatments used in the clinic are powerful and effective. They include various acids and intralesional injections of a drug called bleomycin.
