I found this black dot located on the palm of my hand. It is a very small black dot and is "buried" in my hand (inside of palm closest to the pinky finger). There is skin on top of it that is perfectly health, no bumps, etc. What could this be? Could it be lead from an accidental pencil poke ( I do not remember if this occurred or not) or could it be a wart? It has been there for a while, maybe even a year or so. I never really paid attention to it but I would like to know what you think.
Even if the skin is perfectly healthy on top of this, could it still be something like a wart? If so, would it be contagious if it were located beneath the skin like this?
I thank you for answering each of these questions for me.
My mom has little black dots on the palm of her hands...They start off like a blister then they turn into black dots...After that the skin starts to peel off...My mom and my aunt does it...What could it be???
