Brief Answer:
Plantar warts

Detailed Answer:

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

These are plantar warts. The liquid that you are applying is a keratolytic and is recommended treatment modality for plantar warts. I suggest you to continue with this liquid. Apply it once daily, at night. The wart bearing skin would gradually peel off. Just apply the liquid on to the wart. First, cover the surrounding skin with Vaseline so as to prevent it from peeling.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
