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.

There are prescription meds that can be tried.

In brief: Warts
Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid.
Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week. The wart will swell and may throb as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black within the first two days and in two weeks gone.

In brief: Aldara (imiquimod)
Aldara (imiquimod) is a prescription medication that can also be considered; talk with your doctor.

In brief: May freeze them
There are over the counter medications that can treat very small, simple ones.
Some kits have some very cold liquid that freezes the wart, and others are a topical agent that chemically dries out the wart and causes it to fall off. Warts in sensitive areas, or those that grow back should be evaluated by a doctor.
