The common foot condition, warts, are not life-threatening but can be a real annoyance. The two major issues with warts are that they are extremely contagious, meaning that you can not only spread them to other people but also other warts to pop up around your body, and warts may be painful, particularly in an area where their is pressure on them.
Foot warts appear to look as a dry blister or callus and mostly have tiny black dots on them that is blood vessels taking blood from the virus that supports the wart. Warts on the feet, known as Planter Warts, may be painful as you step on them. Sometimes warts disappear as fast as they arrive, sometimes warts can be treated by over the counter medication, but other the wart too powerful to be eliminated by simple over the counter medication and needs to either be removed by a podiatrist or treated with a stronger medication prescribed by a podiatrist.
