You can try: Compound W is an OTC wart treatment you could try, but I don't recommend it. It would likely take weeks of regular treatment in a painful area. It might work but lack of experience in how to use it would limit chance of success. The quickest way to remove them is to have them removed with a laser. Depending on size & number, there are alternatives that may respond to prescribed topical meds.
