In brief: Yes

But be careful because they burn when they get on your skin.
Over the counter wart remover solutions are usually salicylic acid solutions. You can put vaseline on the good skin around the wart to keep the salicylic acid away. Covering the wart (after applying medicine) helps. Multiple treatments are usually necessary depending on the size of the wart.
