These plantar warts, like the previous wart on the finger, look different than other warts on the body. The thick skin can look like a corn or a callous. If you look closely, plantar warts will typically have black dots at the base. These are tiny blood vessels that grew abnormally and often have tiny blood clots in them preventing them from carrying blood.
