Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment of Plantar Warts in Children

What Are Plantar Warts?

Plantar warts are a skin growth caused by a viral infection called the human papillomavirus, or HPV. The growths form on the bottom of the foot and are solid and grainy or bumpy in appearance.
Also known as verruca plantaris or simply verruca, plantar warts typically form at the heel, toe, or ball of the foot. Pressure in these areas often forces the wart to grow inward instead of outward.

Symptoms of Plantar Warts

The main symptom of plantar warts is the growth itself. Plantar warts are usually:

  • Small, with a rough or grainy texture
  • White, gray, or tan in color, often with black pinpoints (sometimes called wart seeds)
  • Hard when they grow inward
  • Located near or on a callus

Your child may also feel pain or tenderness in the area around the plantar wart, particularly when standing or walking.
Plantar warts may also form in a cluster. These are sometimes referred to as mosaic warts.

There are many products to treat warts, both over the counter and prescribed, but essentially there are 3 tried and true methods. Dr. Jarman discusses the 3 recommended options and why Cantharidin is the preferred one.

What Causes Plantar Warts in Children?

Plantar warts are caused when HPV enters the body through a weak spot or opening in the skin on the sole of the foot.

There are more than 100 types of HPV; the virus is very common. However, not every type of HPV causes plantar warts. In addition, not everyone who contracts HPV develops warts. Much depends on your child’s immune system.

Risk Factors for Plantar Warts

The HPV strain that causes plantar warts loves a warm, moist environment. Risk is highest in children who walk barefoot around public pools or shower rooms. Additional risk factors include:

  • Age, with children and teens at greater risk than adults
  • Having a weakened immune system
  • A history of plantar warts
  • Walking barefoot

Please note that walking barefoot is especially risky if your child has any open sores, cuts, or dry skin cracks on their feet. Skin is also more fragile when it’s soft and wet, such as after bathing or swimming.

How to Prevent Plantar Warts

Protect your child’s feet against plantar warts by following these tips:

  • Keep feet dry and clean
  • Change socks and shoes every day
  • Do not walk barefoot around swimming pools or public showers or locker rooms

If your child already has plantar warts, they can prevent the condition from spreading by:

  • Not picking at the wart
  • Cleaning hands thoroughly after touching their feet
  • Using a disposable emery board or buffer around the wart – and not using it anywhere else on the foot

When to See a Pediatric Podiatrist for Plantar Warts

Schedule an appointment with your child’s podiatrist if:

  • You aren’t sure whether the lesion is a plantar wart
  • Your child is experiencing pain
  • The plantar wart is bleeding
  • The wart’s appearance or color changes
  • Your child has diabetes or poor sensation in their feet
  • Your child has a weakened immune system

Never attempt to treat a plantar wart yourself! Due to their inward growth, safe self-treatment is nearly impossible with plantar warts.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Plantar Warts

To diagnose plantar warts, Dr. Jarman begins by examining the child’s foot. He’s looking for common signs of verruca, particularly the dark pinpoints, which are actually tiny blood vessels. The doctor may send a small portion of the lesion, known as a shave biopsy, for testing to verify that it is a plantar wart.

Without treatment, plantar warts last for a year or more. The infection may also spread to other parts of the foot. That’s why Dr. Jarman recommends removal whenever possible.

Plantar Wart Removal

Pediatric Foot & Ankle relies on Cantharidin as a conservative plantar wart removal method. This is applied topically by the doctor and works from the epidermis (skin’s outer layer) inward, causing the wart to separate from surrounding tissue. The process typically takes around two weeks. Dr. Jarman will send you home with care instructions to ensure proper healing.

Your child’s feet are designed for life

Surgical Wart Removal: What to Expect: Elliott M. Perel, DPM, FACFAS: Podiatrist

Warts are raised, fleshy skin growths caused by a viral infection. They’re classified by their location on the body: palmar warts on the hands and plantar warts on the soles of the feet.

At Monroe Foot & Ankle Care, podiatric physician and surgeon Dr. Elliott Perel and his team understand that foot warts can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing, even if they’re not medically dangerous. That’s why they offer a number of treatment options for their patients in Jamesburg, New Jersey to eliminate the problem, including surgical wart removal.

What causes wart formation?

Plantar warts are caused by some strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), though not the types that cause genital warts. In fact, they’re not spread easily from person to person — they need a suitable environment.

The virus enters your body through small breaks in the skin of the soles of your feet. Your body weight pressing down causes the entry point to thicken and become callused, as the wart grows deeper into the skin. Plantar warts aren’t a health threat, but the calluses can be uncomfortable. In addition, you may have some irritation, pain, and/or minor bleeding at the site.

HPV thrives in warm, moist environments, which makes swimming pools and locker rooms ideal breeding grounds, and walking barefoot in those areas puts your foot health at risk. You’ll notice the wart forming at the point of entry, but the virus, once entrenched, can spread to other locations, causing the problem to multiply.

HPV is pretty much an “equal opportunity” invader, but it’s more likely to cause warts in:

  • Children and teenagers (less fastidious about foot care)
  • Immunocompromised individuals
  • Those who’ve had an HPV infection before
  • People walking barefoot in locker rooms

What symptoms do foot warts produce?

If you develop plantar warts, symptoms include:

  • A small, fleshy growth, usually at the base of the toes or the heel
  • A hard callus over the entry point
  • Small, clotted blood vessels that appear as black dots on the callus
  • Pain or tenderness when standing or walking

Why should you remove warts?

Warts aren’t medically dangerous, but that doesn’t mean they don’t affect your podiatric health.

Having plantar warts means you have HPV in your system, and viruses are masters of replicating themselves, even those that aren’t particularly contagious. You may go from having a single, uncomfortable wart to having a bunch of them at one time. And, you’re more vulnerable to becoming reinfected.

Developing wart clusters may also mean your immune system is compromised in some way, and it’s fueling the infection. Make an appointment with your primary care doctor to determine if you have an underlying condition, so you can get appropriate treatment for that.

In addition, warts that cause you pain or other discomfort can have serious consequences. It’s natural to shift your gait to avoid putting weight on the wart. However, that alters your body mechanics, and you may subsequently develop additional pain in your feet, legs, and even your back. Removing plantar warts is necessary to avoid all these problems.

Treating foot warts

While most warts clear up by themselves, it often takes about two years, which is a long time to wait. Fortunately, Dr. Perel offers several treatment options, including surgical removal.

Prescription immunotherapy drugs help rev up your immune system to fight the virus causing the warts. Medications like cantharidin (which comes from the blister beetle) cause the wart to form a blister and fall off. And salicylic acid applied directly to the wart can dissolve its layers.

If conservative treatments don’t prove effective, Dr. Perel can remove your warts surgically, in one of a few ways:

  1. An electric needle: destroys the base of the wart
  2. Cryotherapy: uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart, causing it to drop off
  3. Micro excision: uses a scalpel to cut the wart out without damaging surrounding skin

In all cases, Dr. Perel can numb the area first so you don’t feel anything, and he covers the wound with a bandage to keep the area clean while it heals. Once it does heal, it’s like it never was there at all; scarring is minimal.

Preventing warts in the first place is ideal, and aside from always wearing shoes or flip-flops in moist areas, Dr. Perel also recommends custom orthotics. These inserts slip right into your shoe and cushion the weight-bearing areas of your foot, preventing you from altering your gait.

If you’ve got plantar warts, there’s no time like the present to get them removed. Call Monroe Foot & Ankle Care at 732-521-6166 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Perel, or book online with us today.

This type of neoplasm is caused by the human papillomavirus and belongs to types 1, 2, 3. As the name suggests, they are located on the sole of the foot. Such a place is subjected to a lot of pressure and friction while walking.

Plantar warts

Plantar warts are benign, flesh-colored neoplasms of varying diameters. Localized on the skin of the foot, its plantar part, as well as toes. In appearance, they resemble growths with an uneven, rough surface. Often they are covered with filiform papillae with black patches – thrombosed capillaries. The disease has a viral nature, due to which the formations quickly spread over the surface, and also acquire a multiple character.

Removal of warts on the sole is a modern cosmetic procedure aimed at eliminating hyperkeratic dense skin formations, the localization of which is the plantar surfaces of the feet. The procedure includes not only an aesthetic, but also a functional aspect. Neoplasms on the feet are particularly painful, cause inconvenience when walking, are characterized by frequent relapses and poor susceptibility to therapy.

Causes

The cause of this pathology is HPV – human papillomavirus. The virus can enter the body through any damage to the skin: calluses, cracks, cuts. Infection, as a rule, occurs in a domestic way or in public places: in a bathhouse, sauna, swimming pool, etc. The reason for the development is also wearing uncomfortable shoes, profuse sweating of the feet.

Methods of therapy

Our cosmetology center New Skin Clinic offers several modern effective ways to remove neoplasms on the feet:

1

Surgical excision of the wart

After antiseptic treatment and preliminary anesthesia, the doctor carefully cuts out the growth from the foot with a surgical scalpel. After the bleeding stops, the specialist applies a cosmetic suture, which is removed after 14-20 days. At the request of the client, the cured sample can be sent for histological examination.

2

Radio wave surgery

Removal of benign neoplasms from the sole is carried out with the help of a special “radio knife” – a radio wave scalpel, which affects the growth cells with high frequency radio waves. Radio waves “evaporate” the formation layer by layer without damaging uninfected tissues.

The advantages of the technique are its high removal rate, safety and bloodlessness. After the procedure, no scars remain on the skin, and wound healing takes about 10-14 days.

3

Laser destruction

Removal is performed under local anesthesia. The laser device allows you to control the beam propagation area with maximum accuracy, without touching healthy surrounding tissues, quickly and accurately removing the build-up on the foot.

The neoplasm is evaporated in layers from the skin under the influence of laser radiation. At the same time, the laser has an antibacterial effect, and also “seals” the walls of blood vessels, preventing bleeding. After healing (10-14 days), there are no scars or scars on the skin, which is also an advantage of this technique.
