OTC: Try otc wart tape treatment at the store. If it does not work you should see your doctor to have it frozen with liquid nitrogen.

Lots of ways: Get it treated! 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 ).
