Skin line disruption: Along with the other answers, there is noticible disruption of the normal skin lines of the feet when encountering plantar warts. Callouses will have skin lines running through them, but warts will have a "stop-and-start" ditsribution to the skin lines.

Pain, callus: Plantar warts are usually on the bottom (sole) of the foot, and are usually surrounded by callus tissue. Often they are painful to squeeze, and they disrupt the natural skin lines.

What can I do about plantar warts ?

Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding.

OTC or doctor visit: There are several otc products which you can check out and try. Some home remedies such as duct-tape, potato's sap etc...May help some folks. If these fail, consult your doc who may be able to give you prescription med or remove them in the office... Good luck.
