Some kind of strange wart on my finger?

For the past three months i have had what i thought to be a wart on the bottom of my left index finger tip. Been trying to freeze it off and use compound w but nothing is helping it. It is dead skin on top but has a little pain if I'm poking something like when i type. There are three little white specks inside if you look closely. The skin over it is smooth.

I decided to get more aggressive with my removal and used a corn remover to abrade the top of it off. I was satisfied with my work but i noticed something the next day. There was a "thing" sticking out of it where one of the white dots was. I ended up grabbing my tweezers and pulling it out. It felt like it was stuck only at the base, as if it was rooted in the skin. When it finally pulled free, it was quite small, maybe 2mm long, reddish, pretty hard, and shaped like a grain of rice. I did the same thing to the second one which was the middle size of the three with the same results.

I abraded the skin again today and removed as much as i could of the third and final dot. I'm going to let it heal up and see what happens now that there isn't anything else i can remove from it

This isn't a wart, is it? I would like to know what it is so i can properly treat it myself since I'm laid off with no insurance.

  • Sounds like you may have a plantar wart or more commonly known as a Verruca.Some over the counter salicylic acid should clear it up, if not consult a doctor
