shaved it down too much

Thanks. This is likely to be a wart. Dermatology will help. One option whilst waiting is to try a topical wart treatment for a month to see if it resolved, alternatively cryotherapy may help.

a doctor never thought it was a wart they were unsure but it stings? warts don't sting?

P.s thank you for responding

The base can become inflamed, typical of a wart, this can cause the skin to sting.
