Healing ointment such as Aquaphor
Here is a method which is very effective and it works fast.
- 50% trichloroacetic acid ( can be purchased from Amazon).
- Build a small dam using the Vaseline around each wart.
- Dip a Q-tips in the acid.
- Apply one stroke to each wart.

Trust me, this method is tried and tested and works best.
Be careful not to apply the acid to the normal skin areas as it burns. You will also feel burning sensation when applied to warts. However, the burning sensation disappears within 10 minutes.
