3. Plantar Warts
Yet another symptom of HPV that is often ignored or possibly not associated with the disease is plantar warts. The same strain of HPV that may cause a person to develop common warts can also cause the development of plantar warts. Plantar warts are often found on areas of the body that undergo continued pressure and stress such as the heels or balls of the feet. A plantar wart will be grainy and hard in appearance.
Due to their location, plantar warts often become painful. If they do not become painful, a person may not even realize that they have them because of their location on the body. It is a good idea to look over your body from head to toe on a regular basis, at least once per month, and note any changes that you see, including the appearance of any warts as this could be a sign of HPV.
