In brief: Virus

Verrucas are warts which grow on the soles of the feet.
These are non-cancerous skin growths and are caused due to the human papilloma virus (hpv). A verruca is by itself painless, but due to pressure exerted by the body weight, it can produce pain. Due to the body weight, the verruca gets pushed into the foot and it looks flat on the sole of the feet.
