Plantars wart
I think I may have a plantars wart on my foot. I have had it for a couple of months. It has only become painful recently. It is a white little bump on the sole of my foot. Can you tell me if it is one and how to get rid of it. Also how do you get them.

Gina, plantar warts are caused by a virus just like normal warts are. They’re just warts on the soles that are forced into the skin because you walk on them. The best way to treat them is to have them surgically removed. Good luck.
