Flat Plantar Warts

Many plantar warts on weight-bearing areas, such as the heel or ball of the foot, are flat and only slightly raised. They may still have a rough surface, but the surface is only slightly higher than the surrounding skin because pressure from walking and daily activities forces the wart to grow inward.

Flat plantar warts may be mistakenly identified as calluses or corns because the skin above them grows in thick, tough layers.1‘Plantar Wart (Verruca Plantaris).’ Plantar Wart (Verruca Plantaris) - Foot Health Facts, www.foothealthfacts.org/conditions/plantar-wart-(verruca-plantaris)
