Not much else: You already tried the usual route which is unfortunately not adequate...There isnt much else otc....Compound-w may help..But if not, then see you doc... Your doctor may have liquid nitrogen in office, electrodessication equipment, or prescribing and anti-wart medication...Which are more effective...

Warts: I have had patients tell me what works best for warts, a benign skin tumor initiated by a virus. Duct tape, windex, liver, nail polish, crushed vitamin c tablets, goose down and tar. Warts are uncomfortable, unsightly, and often regress spontaneously. Get them treated if they spread rapidly. Sorry, but these other treatments are highly unlikely to work. Cryotherapy is the best treatment.

With so many failing treatments it might be time to reconsider and see the doctor.

Warts: There is no one best treatment , even the 2 that i find the most effective don't always work. The anecdotal treatments referred to in another answer are just that - anecdotal. See your podiatrist for real treatment . In my experience , the otc stuff is a waste of time and money.
