Plantar warts form when the human papilloma virus gets underneath the outer layer of skin. The human papilloma virus is often found in shower rooms and any other type of dirty floor. For this reason, plantar warts are common on the feet but can easily be spread to other parts of the body, including the face. These warts are typically firm, rough flesh-colored bumps of skin. Treatment is not always necessary, but desirable for many people.

Things you need
- Vitamin A capsules
- Vitamin C
Buy vitamin A capsules. Make sure they are the soft liquid-filled capsules. Poke a hole in one of the capsules with a needle. Squeeze the liquid onto the wart and rub it in. Do this once a day until the wart disappears.
Keep the wart as dry as possible. The virus that causes warts strive in moist conditions. The more dry the area it is, the quicker the virus will die.
Do not touch the wart. This can cause extra irritation and increases the risk of spreading warts to other parts of your body.
Increase your vitamin C intake. Citrus fruits are a good source of this vitamin. Vitamin C capsules are also available and are generally inexpensive.
