Suggest Treatment For Wart Like Growth On Finger

I have a growth on my finger (looks like dead skin) that I thought was a wart. It is on the side of my nail. I treated it as a wart for a few weeks and attempted to apply a wart remover, but it hasn t gone away. The skin around it appears to crust and dry out. If I pick at it and try to pull it off, it typically peels off like dead skin or bleeds. If it peels off, it grows back. I would like to get rid of it once and for all...
