Warts: Warts are caused by a human papilloma virus. There are no pills to take as a wart is just a cell with dna in it. It is the same dna as ours , hence no pill acts on it. Your antigen antibody system must recognize the virus to prevent further expression of the virus. Topical treatments including sal acid and laser work well when they pesky lesions show up
