Hi there. Dermatology is a visual field my friend. As such, it is well advised on your part to please upload a good clear photograph of the region/foot onto this web-site using the 'upload data' icon on the right side of your screen! Then we will be in a better position to opine if indeed this is a case of 'warts' or not'! Warts do not always have to be irregular or rough. They can vary in morphology. If you had warts some 20 years ago, yes, i would be worried & suggest a skin biopsy from the site & histopathology analysis prior to any further intervention. I recommend setting an appointment for the same with your nearest dermatologist & if you wish to indicate which part of the world you hail from, would be happy to recommend a colleague to help you. Alternatively, you may call on our healthcaremagic staff or directory to help you. Cheers & Wish you Good Luck!
