Thanks for writing in.

Warts are caused by human papiloma virus .

Recurrence is common even after removal of warts.

Best method is RF cautery . It causes coagulation of tissue by heat.

RF cautery is an office procedure. Can be done by a qualified dermatologist.

Dermatologist. All the warts are removed in single sitting one or two folloup may be needed.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
