Many ways : To treat a wart. But warts are generally flesh colored or a vaiant so i would confirm with a doctor that the lesion you are treating is indeed a wart.

Lots of ways: Get it treated! you can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what i like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995 vol. 85 no. 11 717-718 ).

May not be a wart: If this is a subsequent result of originally freezing a the suspicious lesion, it may be the effect of the initial cryotherapy and it may be the scab formed. However, not all lesions on the foot are warts, and the ones that change in color are suspicious and should be biopsied. Go to a podiatrist to have it examined.

Yes - plantar wart: Warts can appear almost anywhere on the skin. There are many different types actually. What you describe sounds like a plantar wart - that you may have acquired walking barefoot in public baths/swimming pools/shower areas? Warts can easily be treated though and there are a number of over-the-counter remedies that can be tried. A doc with liquid nitrogen or a dermatologist can help too.

What to expect for removal of wart on bottom of toe?

Depends: It depends on how they are removed. If surgical then the toe will be sore for a couple of days and the area will heal in from the base so there will be a small whole where the wart was removed.
