My inclination would also be wart based on the description. The trouble with warts is that they take a very long time to treat on your own and most people give up before the project is completed. There are other methods for getting rid of warts, including using an occlusive covering (duct tape is sometimes used but other first-aid tape can do too). This seems to provide an environment that is not so friendly to the virus and is an easy remedy, but again, it takes a while. Some warts will disappear spontaneously, as fast and mysteriously as they appeared. If you want a more immediate cure, see a doctor to have it removed by freezing, cutting, or burning. If by chance it is not a wart, the doctor could better diagnose it when it is visualized and/or tested.
