What's the Best Way to Treat Warts?
Parents, and pediatricians, often get frustrated with common wart treatments, especially since they can be painful, take time, and don't always work. Although most warts do typically go away on their own and may not require treatment, some do become painful, bothersome, rapidly spread, or don't go away, even after several years, and do need to be treated. The most common treatments that your pediatrician will likely try include freezing warts with liquid nitrogen, which is called cryotherapy, or applying cantharidin to warts.
Answer : For starters, check with your doctor before beginning any self-treatment for warts. You might mistake another kind of skin growth for a wart and hurt yourself. The jury is still out on duct-tape therapy for warts.
