Hello,
From the symptoms it can be a callus, cutaneous horn, cyst or wart. A cutaneous horn a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic. But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain.

A cyst can be infected with any infective agent even bacteria like staph. Without examination and lab investigations like skin biopsy and examination of the tissue sampleunder the microscope, nothing can be said with confirmation.

In my opinion, you should follow up with your dermatologist and discuss about these three possibilities with him.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
