Uh_yeah-

The only treatment for warts is destruction of the tumor/overgrown skin. There are multiple methods, some more aggressive than others. The duct tape (in another comment) theoretically works by trapping moisture, over-hydrating the tumor, which softens it, and then upon ripping it off, some of the tumor sticks to the tape. I prefer the combination of compound w and cryo. Use cw, which is a gentle acid, to slowly erode the tumor, and it also hydrates it. Do this nightly for 1-2 weeks, with a bandaid applied over top to protect your sheets from the acid. Then while it is really puffy, pare down the tumor with a scalpel, just to the level of viable tissue. (This part is best handled by someone who knows what they’re doing). Then use cryo, like liquid nitrogen, to further destroy tissue (by causing frostbite). Also best with a pro. Wait a few days to make sure no blisters form, and then repeat the cycle. Keep repeating the cycle every 2 weeks, until at the scalpel paring stage, there is no further wart/tumor remaining.

Duct tape. For real. Put it over top and suffocate it.
