In brief: There are countless
Ways of trying to get rid of warts.
Everybody claims an 80% success rate with their method, which may or may not be true. Warts are universally frustrating to patient and doctor alike. There is no one best answer.

In brief: Varies
Warts usually go away quickly or seem to take forever. Most remedies work it just depends on how long you have to apply them.

In brief: Wart treatment
If you go to your doctor, he/ she may freeze the wart with liquid nitrogen.
A blister will form around the wart and the dead tissue will fall off after a week. Other medications, such as cantharidin, bleomycin and Aldara (imiquimod) can be injected into the wart. Another alternative treatment would be minor surgery, where the wart is cut away or laser surgery where the laser beam burns and destroy wart tissue.
