Black Dots

Tiny black dots seen in some warts are actually blood vessels. Sometimes these dots are referred to as seeds, but this is a misconception. Plantar warts, like most other warts, start growing in the outer layer of skin.

Capillaries, the body's smallest blood vessels, grow into the wart and supply it with nutrients and oxygen. Warts are commonly supplied by capillaries, but they aren't always visible in large, thick warts. Attempts to remove warts may damage blood vessels and create more noticeable dark spots.2‘Plantar Warts.’ Ada, ada.com/conditions/plantar-warts/
