One of a few ways.: Three common ways that plantar warts are removed are freezing them, application of chemicals and surgical removal. The first two are available to you as over the counter treatments found at most drug stores. The last one requires you go to a surgeon or podiatrist.

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.

Topical: Aldara (imiquimod) cream works for many patients. If this fails, laser vaporization can be very effective. See a podiatrist for an evaluation.
