Warts often occur on the bottoms of feet and are caused by a virus. Therefore, they are contagious and can spread to other areas of the foot and even hands. Warts may be painful and are not very attractive. Treatments range from over-the-counter acids to surgical removal. Often acid treatments take a long time and are not very effective. Since warts are due to a virus, they can be extremely resistant and can reoccur.
