Many things...: You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what i like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995 vol. 85 no. 11 717-718 ). Laser treatments, excisional surgery, etc., etc.

Few things: Acid application, freeze them, laser them, topical creams, topical vesicants, leave them alone. Any and all of the above can be helpful.

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.

Great question: There are many ways to treat plantar warts. Topical medication, excision, injection, cryotherapy and duct tape? It is best to see your podiatrist or dermatologist for evaluation and treatment.

OTC or doctor visit: There are several otc products which you can check out and try. Some home remedies such as duct-tape, potato's sap etc...May help some folks. If these fail, consult your doc who may be able to give you prescription med or remove them in the office... Good luck.
