The goal of wart treatment is to destroy or remove the wart without creating scar tissue, which can be more painful than the wart itself. How a wart is treated depends on the type of wart, its location, and its symptoms. Also important is your willingness to follow a weeks- or months-long course of treatment.
Most warts don't need treatment. But if you have warts that are painful or spreading, or if you are bothered by the way they look, visit your doctor for treatment options.
