Silver duct tape: Plantar warts can be stubborn to treat, and often the surrounding skin becomes eroded and painful, with little effect on the actual wart. If the skin around the wart becomes irritated, take a week off the topical salicylic acid treatment, and use silver duct tape. Once the skin is healed, you may restart with the salicylic acid pads. You may need to have your warts treated at the doctors office. ...Read more

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.

On the planter surface of feet, it is safe, since it is kept covered.
On hands it would be ill advised at that age, since itcan get to the mouth.
Nighttime usage with a bandage can be attempted if you are comfortable. ...Read more
