Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have viewed the Image.

I can see single, skin colored, raised bump with rough surface.
Yes, it seems like a common wart to me i.e Verruca Vulgaris which is an infection caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) type 2 and 4, commonly. Freezing and electrosurgical fulguration are good options for treatment of common warts.
