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.

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: Many ways
That means there is no best way if there are many options.
Most doctors would use liquid nitrogen "freeze". (only doctors would have this equipment.) you may try otc mediplast tape, high concentration salicylic acid, like over 15% liquid. Some doctors try expensivre laser treatment, but i don't think it's better than others.
