Laser may help: There are many ways to treat a wart. While cryosurgery "freezing " the wart is probably the most popular method, I have found that laser is very effective. Your first step should be to have it check by a doctor to make sure it is indeed a wart.

Break-in period: When switching or when using orthotics for the first time the body needs an adjustment period. Ideally you will use the new orthotics for one hour the first day, 2 hours the 2nd day and you should increase the length of time using the orthotics by an hour each day. Your body should be use to the new orthotics in about a week. That said, why switch from custom molded to over the counter?

The base of the toe: The most effective numbing is place at base (proximal aspect) of the toe, on both sides.
