In brief: Wart treatment
Salicylic acid is a keratolytic medication, which means it dissolves the protein (keratin), which makes up most of both the wart and the thick layer of dead skin that often tops it.
This medication is over the counter. The doctor can use: laser, aldara, (imiquimod) minor surgery, immunotherapy, cantharidin, or cryotherapy.

In brief: Careful persistence
Treatment for a plantar wart involves the persistent use of an anti-wart medication (rx or over the counter) carefully applied only to the wart.
This should be done daily until the wart has resolved, but see your doctor if this does not resolve or if it worsens.
