In brief: Yes
Prescription for antiviral creams may be helpful however, can take many months.
Having the warts trimmed may help lessen the thickness and allow the medication to penetrate better.

In brief: Plantar warts
Yes, but otc treatments work well if the warts are small.
A foot doctor can also treat in the office or prescribe if necessary.

In brief: Several treatments.
You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good.
Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding.
