See a Podiatrist: Warts are caused by a virus and can spread to other body parts and other people. There are a number of treatments a podiatrist can use to get rid of warts. Most involve getting your immune system to recognize the virus. If there are a minimal number of warts they can be removed by a minor surgical procedure.

Many treatments: If home remedies are failing see a doctor. There are lasers i.E pulse dye laser which works nicely. Doctors may also use stronger meds that are not readily avialable to you.

Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding.
