Plantar warts: This viral infection can be approached with a variety of otc meds that your friendly pharmacist can introduce to you. Often, however, these will not prove adequate and the best thing to do is to see a pcp, dermatologist or podiatrist and get this taken care of properly.

Beetle Juice: I used to freeze or burn warts, but I have seen better results (with less painful treatment) with cantharone solution. It comes from a blistering beetle (don't ask ask me how or who found out!). It is expensive and difficult to obtain in the United States--however, if your physician has a bottle of it he can apply a little bit once a week for 2-3 applications. The wart usually blisters away.
