Local destruction.: Turns out are hard to get rid of. Your doctor can freeze, burn, inject or even use a laser. Ultimately it takes a good immune reaction to the freezing or other treatment used by the doctor. We damage the tissue by freezing and your imune system then attacks the wart. See your doctor. The over the counter treatments dont work well for plantar warts. The skin on the foot is very thick.
