Verruca are not usually painful when you stand unless they are in a weight-bearing joint area. If you pinch it with your fingers it may hurt but if you press directly on them they tend not to. It is very common to see small black dots in the tissue and this is the small capillaries coming up through the viral tissue from the base layer. Veruca can look different on different areas of the feet. At So Podiatry we can help detect and identify what it is on your foot.
