Plantar wart?: Hard to say a wart could do this! I would see a doctor in real life or consult via health tap. Good luck

See your doctor: There are lots of things that could be causing pain on the bottom of your foot. It could be a callus, a wart, a fibroma, or some other lesion. Have it examined by your doctor.

Sore on Foot: See if you can take a photo to send to a podiatrist in the Concierge program here at health tap. Is it growing? What does it look like? Have you tried trimming it?

Many things: Could be many things. Wart, callus, clogged pores, fibroma, ganglion, fungus, malignant and nonmalignant lesions of many sorts, etc.... I think a doctors visit would be in your best interest soon.

Shake that thing.: For someone of your age, there is a short list of things that be found on the bottom of the foot. The vast majority will either be a wart, intractable callus, foreign body or a porokeratoma. Of course, there are other possibilities. A specialist can easily identify and offer the best solutions for eliminating the "thing".

Barbara -: many years? Please don't wait any longer, go get it checked out. IF I saw a picture maybe I could say more….but the only thing I have is a "thing on the bottom of the foot"…its too broad a description to fathom a guess….sorry..

Good question: I would need a better description than "thing" and a photo to help you figure out what you have.

The thing : You are referring to could be a spur. Need more information . Please have yourself checked out by your Pcp or go see an orthopedic surgeon.
