What are the main symptoms of verrucae?
Plantar warts are also called verrucae, they are caused by an infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV) and represented by bumpy growths that appear on the soles of your feet. Some verrucae can disappear on their own, but others present complications. A small black dot can appear in the middle if the verrucae start to bleed. The pressure of your body pressed upon the verrucae forces them into the skin, thus causing you unbearable pain and that is when you must consult a specialist in the matter.
Verrucae symptoms can differ from person to person, depending on the skin type and how much they have evolved. They thrive in warm, moist environments and can be highly contagious, but not everyone can get infected with the virus. Verrucae are most likely to appear in children and teenagers, but some people become immune to the virus in time, while others can get infected faster by walking bare foot around locker rooms or swimming pools, especially if they have the tiniest cut or scrape.
