What is the difference between warts and pimples ?

I am female early 20 s, normal weight, etc. I recently was diagnosed with plantar warts on the bottom of my foot and heel . I also have acne on my face. I am now concerned if I am spreading the warts from my feet to my face, and how I would be able to tell the difference between warts and pimples . Is there any way to clearly tell the difference?

Plantar warts cannot spread to the face because it is a strain of virus which cannot live on the face. Don't worry. Also, Warts have a corrugated, finger-like projections growth on the entire surface if you see with a magnifying lens but acne do not have this feature. You need to get your Plantar warts cauterised by liquid Nitrogen which is one of the best treatment options.
