It doesn't : Aspirin doesn't work on plantar warts. Sorry but that is not a treatment for plantar warts.

Aspirin will never work on a HPV viral skin infection. Other than acids/freezing, etc, you can use a laser or surgery to excise them. Best of luck

You would wet: It and apply it to the wart. I think there are much better treatments though.

ASA not ASAP.: The best you could hope for is that the wart would cause a skin infection in the wart area. The wart would probably go away then. Not good advice though.
