|Bequavious||UPDATE: I had to take Roxy to the vet for some other stuff, so I asked the her about my girl's nose while we were there. She said it definitely looked like a histiocytoma and I can expect it to crust over and fall off in the next three weeks or so|

Ours had one that looked very similar. One day we finally figured out she had stuck her nose in the oven when my wife was removing a casserole dish and hit it on the rack. Because she did it again.....
Sorry, I know that sounded like a ridiculous reply. She never cried or complained about it. It got better over time but did leave a small scar. I just wanted to open you up to infinite possibilities. A vet visit is the only way to confirm I suppose.

How old is the dog? Dogs from 1 - 3 years old often get histiocytomas which look like warts. They're most prevalent on a dog's face and neck and legs.
My Zeus had one under his chin which was about the size of a dime and looked red and painful.
As I recall my reading, it's when a histiocyte (immune cell in the blood) get a little out of whack under the skin and goes crazy growing into a round, button-sized wart or lesion.
Do a search on google and I'm sure you'll find hundreds of pictures one of which may match your dog's "wart".
They go away in about 2 - 4 months. Zeus' histiocytoma faded away quickly within about 4 weeks.
If not, get the dog tot he vet for testing.

|hunterisgreat||Jäger has a similar mark right now from suitwork a few weeks ago. If it doesn't go away in a month, or is clearly infected/oozing/failing to heal, I'd get it checked out.|
