Hi Manish, thanks for posting your query

I can understand your anxiety regarding warts,

warts are caused by a viral infection within the skin, asymptomatic but of cosmetic concern, various treatment options are available but recurrances are common because it is not possible to remove the infection completely even after electro cautery or laser So a lot of patience is required.

Other modalities like cryotherpy, paring and chemical cautery, laser can be tried

prescribed medications are are apt for warts so you may continue using them.

warts can resolve spontaneous even without treatment .they may resolve by 18 months-2 years of occurance so you need patience till then

hope this helps you
