Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
I understand your concern as warts can be very uncomfortable and itchy. Duct tape method is one of the modes of therapy which is usually chemical mode of treatment. But some warts can be resistant to such treatment. I suggest you get in touch with your skin doctor for other modes of treatment. Cautery can be tried, surgical removal is most effective. Thanks.
