There are many modalities of treatment in which none was shown to be perfect and only few were based on high-level clinical trials. Treatment should be individualized in practice depending on many factors like immunity status, age, number and sites of the warts, with generally being less costly and with no pain. Treatments can be traditional, destructive, virucidal, antimitotic and immunomodulatory. Salicylic acid being most widely used due to effectiveness and convenience with little side effects.
