Plantar wart on toe, painful when pressed. Where did I get this from?

i have a what it seems to be a planter wart on the side of my right big toeon my left foot . the pharmacist told me to get a liquid form removal due to the fact the freeze off was to exspensive to get.She noted that it pretty big pretty big so bandaid med would not be too affective. It is a dark mountain slope-painful when pressed,in sneakers,high hill shoes so i were flip flops and walking if too much of it. Any who my question is where did i get this from? is this from HPV virus .or could have picked up by wearing other people shoes(goodwill)or walking on something dirty or all the above? by the way i have RA if that makes a difference , im 35yr old . Thank you for you time and attention to this question.Lyn

Hi, Welcome to healthcaremagic,
From your description it shows that you are having planter wart.
Planter wart at foot or toe is because of Human Papilloma Virus.
It is a self limiting disease. But if the size of the wart is big, painful and to shorten the duration it should be treated.
Treatment by cauterization or by liquid application or by medicated band-aid.
Do not wear tight shoes or other person's shoes.
