In brief: Liquid nitrogen

While there are a number of treatment options for palmar warts, the most commonly used by me is liquid nitrogen application.
It seems most effective as well. Acid application is another method, although, it seems less commonly use. Electrocautery may be tried. Anecdotal use of ranitidine has been described. An over-the-counter histofreeze may work for small solitary lesions.

In brief: Warts

Wart are viral infections that can stay for 6 months up to 2 years.
Ignoring the wart helps; duct tape also helps. Sometimes your doctor prescribes Zantac (ranitidine) to help make them go away faster. Sometimes you doctor has to remove them.
