Cut out or laser: Traditionally, surgical excision is most effective. New technology allows us to laser the warts off.

Warts: Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid. Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week. The wart will swell and may throb as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black within the first two days and in two weeks gone.

Plantar wart: The best and most effective way to remove warts is via the cutera genesis laser device. Its the same machine for fungal nails, but has to be in the wart setting. 3 treatments usually eradicates the wart completely.

Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding.
