Thanks for posting your query.
A direct examination of the swelling is the most effective way of differentiating the warts from pimples. Warts are generally proliferative painless growths attached to the skin and usually are multiple in number.
The pimples are caused by superficial skin infections and are painful. These do improve on applying a topical steroid based antiseptic ointment.
A histopathological examination is confirmatory.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
