If they walk they gt: Plantar warts are exposure related intrusions of the wart germ on the bottom surface of the feet. I've seen & treated them in toddlers. They are unlikely if the kid never walks barefoot, but when is that likely with a toddler?
Dr. Arnold Beresh
Podiatry 41 years experience
No: Warts can be seen in any age.
Dr. Libby Putnam
Podiatry 12 years experience
Nope!: Plantar warts tend to be a young-person disease. I very rarely see anyone over 40 with a wart!
Dr. Scott Keith
Podiatry 44 years experience
Au contraire.: On the contrary. Warts are generally seen more on younger individuals, including children.
