This drawing is a closeup of a plantar wart on a foot. A plantar wart is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and as the picture shows, starts at the epidermis, but goes all the way down to the dermis as the tissue is infected. It grows inward and because the treatments are topical, it doesn’t always get rid of the entire virus. People should be wary of going to places that aren’t thorough in their cleaning as this virus is contagious. It can start as an itchy bump, but below the surface, the infection continues to grow. Places like nail salons, locker rooms, and public pools have been known to carry the virus. If you have this virus, it is easy to give it to other people, so people need to be cautious and have good hygiene.
