If you want to learn about how to get rid of warts, there are ways are the most commonly used because they are very effective.

Remove warts by several rounds of freezing to get rid of the wart.  Yes, warts can be frozen with the use of liquid nitrogen causing direct destruction to the wart and also alert the immune system to the presence of HPV in the skin.

Make use of salicylic acid, the liquid preparation which can be bought over-the-counter, and which works similarly as with freezing.  You have to first pare away the dead skin on top of your  wart using a file, an emery board or a pumice stone right after a bath; when skin has softened considerably.

Another  way to remove a wart is not to cut it off for it might most likely grow back again, but instead  use garlic.   The acid from garlic burns the wart off for good and it doesn’t even hurt– but don’t use a piece of garlic which is bigger than your wart.  Peel and use just a sliver of garlic which is about the same shape and size of your wart.  Use a duct tape to hold the garlic on for at least 15 minutes a day.  Do this for a couple more days until you notice the wart getting smaller and then eventually gone.    5-8 days would be most ideal.  Don’t cut; ever.
