In brief: See a physician

Warts are caused by the HPV virus.
There are many medications and alternative treatments that work. They also can be removed by a Dermatologist if needed. But before you consider self treatment be sure to have the involved area examined by a physician to be sure you are not dealing with a precancerous actinic keratosis or squamous cell cancer.
