Not necessarily: The "black dots" often seen in warts are not actually the "roots" of the wart as commonly thought. They are basically dried blood from bleeding caused previously by standing and walking on it.If you can't use the salicylic acid treatments, consider freezing them or trying an Rx cream or duct tape regimen. It can take 1 year after tx for the virus to clear your body. Until then, it could come back.
