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.
