Photo galleries of plantar warts of the feet may be viewed at various online medical reference sites, such as WebMd.com, Medicinenet.com, Dermnet.com and Dermatology.About.com. In addition to photos, these sites also provide extensive information about the causes and treatment of plantar warts.
Plantar warts, which are caused by HPV, or the human papillomavirus, are unsightly growths that develop on the heels and balls of the feet, particularly in areas that experience the most pressure. They're called "plantar" because the soles of the foot are also referred to as the "plantar aspect." Although plantar warts are harmless, sufferers often seek medical treatment to have them removed, as this skin condition can cause great discomfort and pain.
