Please remove my painful “wart”?

He was complaining of pain caused by his plantar “warts,” so he decided to have it removed. Upon closer inspection, the “warts” turned out to be clavus (corns). 🤔

This photo shows the difference of plantar clavus and plantar warts under a dermatoscope. On the right, you can see the blood vessels of the plantar wart which is characteristically absent in the left photo (clavus).

Best to see your friendly neighborhood dermatologist for the correct diagnosis and the proper treatment 👍🏼
