This is the simplest way to treat Plantar Warts. The cold can help break down the wart and make removing it more straightforward. Ice is placed on your plantar wart for about 10 minutes. Then things change for another 10 minutes. This is done twice daily, depending on how bad it has gotten.
2. Duct Tape
Another straightforward treatment. Duct tape has been known to work in getting rid of warts. Apply the duct tape to the skin immediately surrounding your wart. Make sure you leave it on for at least a day but note that it typically takes longer than a day before you begin to see results. It may take at least two or three days before your wart begins showing signs of going away.

The best way to remove Plantar Warts is to use an electric toothbrush. The bristles of your toothbrush will be able to break down the wart on contact.
