In brief: Can't

There is no absolute treatment since warts are caused by a virus.

In brief: Cause of warts

Hpv - human papillomavirus causes warts.
It is a dna virus that once in the skin, it is there forever. That being said, the virus is never removed forever and can come back at any time. Warts can be treated and will go away with treatment and often without treatment, but the virus remains.
