Pain with pressing: The classic wart cause pain when the lesion is present from the sides. Foot calluses appear for different reasons. Pressure calluses from friction hurt when stepping on them. Clogged sweat glands have a dark center and a macerated border, on areas of increase pressure. But wart have black pin point and appear on pressure and non pressure areas.

Pain to look at.: Most patients that I have seen over the years are concerned more as just what is this ugly thing that is multiplying, on my foot. Pain occasionally an issue but not the primary complaint.
