Warts

Why does my wart have a black spot on it?

A Answers (2)

  • Warts usually have a black spot in their centers-referred to as a wart "seed." Wart seeds are actually tiny clotted blood vessels inside warts. They are most noticeable in plantar warts.

    The black spots on warts are actually the ends of small clotted blood vessels. These dots, called seeds, are harmless.
