Multiple dark dots

Multiple dark dots are black/red dots within a well-defined yellowish area are characteristic of plantar warts. Recently, an histopathologic study of 18 palmoplantar warts found no thrombosed vessels, suggesting that the presence of dark dots is secondary to intracorneal hemorrhages and not to dermal microthrombi (Fried et al., 2018).
