 Warts, Warts, Warts..... A good commercial removal needed

    I checked for dermatology in here, but didn't find any
  NG's specific to this question:

    Is there a best or better chemical wart removal
   available from the drug store?

    I have dealt with foot calluses but never had
  wart worries before.

Any answers or links appreciated.

Get a dermatologist to show you how to use liquid nitrogen
(LN2).  It's available in any major city from welding gas
suppliers.

Where and how big are your warts?

I had a small wart on my knee and had it removed with
LN2. It took two or three visits and it came back in a few months.  
Why don't Dr's just excise warts?  Seems it would to be quicker
and less painful.

A wart can be excised, but often takes many visits (especially if you use
cryotherapy). Maybe the poster asking about warts would get some good help
at the podiatry group(podiatrists do lots of wart work, and get to be
experts on it). I believe that there is a group called alt.med.podiatry, but
I'm not sure. But ask those guys, and I bet you'll get some good info on
wart removal.

Because even then, they can still come back.  At least with liquid
nitrogen, you are less likely to end up with a scar.

    Just one on my upper arm-- bicep on the 'outside.'  It's
   diameter is maybe 1/4 inch and has a hard surface.

   It is round and wart-like... not a scab formation.

What's the deal with this liquid nitrogen treatment?

  [see previous post.]

The deal is that liquid nitrogen tends to work better on tiny ones.
Just have it excised -- if you agree that a scar on your upper arm
isn't a big deal.

Someone will have to correct me if I am totally wrong on this, but here
goes.  Warts most commonly arise from the papillomavirus.  It causes
rapid cell growth in the epidermal layer.  The key here is that the
growth is usually confined to the epidermis, which lies on top of the
dermis.  Now, you can pretty much do whatever you want to the
epidermis(burn,free, cut) and it won't scar, but if you cut the dermis
you get scarring.  So, ideal treatment for warts it to destroy the
epidermal cells that are hosting the wart without damaging the dermis -
this prevents scarring and possibly 'seeding' of the wart(when cutting)
into the dermis.
    Have you tried those salicylic acid pads that are sold over the
counter?  They got rid of my plantar wart without too much trouble...

    Ok, I'm back again and I am the original poster.

Thanks for this over-the-counter suggestion.  I used
  some sort of callus removal preparation on my foot--
 along with filing and whatnot and it did not come back.

  How's the recidivism factor with the commercial treatment?

This seems to be almost unanswerable.  Judging by the postings I've
seen on misc.health.alternative, there are any number of treatments
for warts, all of which have people who swear by them.  It's probably
worth trying the commercial solutions, since they aren't that
expensive, and if they don't work, you're not really worse off.  The
HPV (which causes warts) is fairly fragile, and thus lots of things
knock it off -- it's just a question of which works for you.
