I have two small warts on my fingers. Please suggest some medicine or home treatment.?

I have two small warts on my fingers. Please suggest some medicine or home treatment.?

Usually leave alone: Warts often disappear on their own. I frown on home treatment because I have seen the disasters cause by this. If one does not know what they are doing, harm can come.
