You increase your risk of infection by walking in bare feet in public showers or locker rooms, the American Orthopaedic Food & Ankle Society says.
Plantar warts may be painful, but they're easily treated or may go away on their own.
The society suggests how to treat plantar warts:
- Your doctor may trim the wart and apply a chemical treatment.
- Salicylic acid patches can be applied daily.
- Use a pumice stone regularly and maintain good foot hygiene.
- If your wart does not respond to treatment, a doctor can apply liquid nitrogen to the wart to freeze and dissolve it. This treatment probably will need to be repeated.
