Warts are dry, firm bump on the skin or a pit or callous on the bottom of the feet. Warts are caused by a virus, which sort of hijacks good skin cells. The only way to get rid of a wart is to destroy some of the good skin cells infected with the wart virus. All warts will eventually go way on their won, but they may take years. If the wart is not bothersome to the child or cosmetically upsetting, it I fine to simply watch and wait. Note: “Plantar” simply means bottom of the feet. Because we stand on our feet, warts grow in instead of out.
Note: Warts are gone when you when you see normal skin lines (like finger prints) where the warts once were.
