Plantar Wart or Verruca

Someone asked me what the difference is between a Plantar Wart and a Verruca. There is no difference, they are the same. Basically it's an area of skin on the foot which grows faster than the surrounding skin and is caused by the Papilloma virus. The infection is usually contracted by walking barefoot on ground that has been exposed to the virus previously.

Amazon has several treatments available here.

The treatment is very simple, easy, and effective, if you have any comments please let me know and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer for free please send them to Ben Dash at

A wart on the sole of the foot is called a verruca. The clinical name for a verruca is a plantar wart. Warts are not usually painful, although those that develop under your fingernails or on the soles of your feet can sometimes hurt. Warts can also occasionally itch or bleed. There are many ways to treat them either naturally or by the help of a podiatry. Calgary Foot Surgeon
