Is it possible to receive plantar warts from another person?

Not that simple. We do not know why many apparently normal people get warts and some do not. We are all exposed to wart viruses every day! i handle warts every day but never get them. I walk around barefoot and shower at my tennis club but never get warts. In parts of the world where shoes are not worn warts are rare. So feel free to ventillate your feet: you you will be less vulnerable to fungus.
