In brief: 86 the pumice

Plantar warts bleed with debridement due to the blood supply that goes to the lesions.
These capillaries are what feed the virus. Normal debridement can make them bleed, but usually without ant pain. Pumice stones may be too abrasive causing you pain. Also, the location of the wart will contribute to the pain level (under a bone). OTC medications have limited benefit. See a podiatrist.
