I have a small paploma in my foot, I am eleven years old.
I thought it was a splinter so I clipped it out with the nail cutters.
It has healed up now but there is still a bump on the skin.
I am scared of telling my mum, I hope she doesnt get mad at me.
Now my brother has a papaloma in the same area.

Since this condition is pretty common and can easily be transmitted to other persons. Confirmation of the diagnosis is done through direct clinical examination. Take care and do keep us posted.
