Childhood warts are very very common but no less unsightly and bothersome for that fact
Warts are a virus, with this in mind about the only way to make them go away is to change their living conditions to something the virus doesn't like.
Try different proprietry "wart killers", use a piece of fine sand paper to file the hard Top/outer skin layer down (NOT till it bleeds) and apply the wart killer for a week. Change the brand - look at the active ingredient to make sure you are using something different. Repeat the procedure changing the active ingredient regularily but allowing it time to get to work.
Apply Milk Thistle juice ( the milky sap) several times a day.
My grand mother said morning pee. Ummmm yeah I suppose you could.
Alter your blood and body chemistry by changing your diet radically ie go vegetarian for a few months.
Eventually they go away on their own.
I remember having a wart on my knee as a 6 or seven year old child that wouldn't go away. One day I banged my knee on a door and the wart was knocked off. It had roots still attatched! and left a hole in my knee which healed over very quickly. The warts never came back after that.
I think it takes longer than most of us have patience for to kill a wart.
Duct tape, the all-purpose household fix-it with hundreds of uses, can also remove warts.
Researchers say over-the-hardware-counter duct tape is a more effective, less painful alternative to liquid nitrogen, which is used to freeze warts.
The study was reported in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
In the study, patients wore duct tape over their warts for six days. Then they removed the tape, soaked the area in water and used an emery board or pumice stone to scrape the spot. The tape was reapplied the next morning. The treatment continued for a maximum of two months or until the wart went away.
The duct tape irritated the warts, and that apparently caused an immune system reaction that attacked the growths, said researcher Dr. Dean "Rick" Focht III of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
He said researchers did not test other kinds of tape, and so they cannot say whether there is anything special about the gray, heavy-duty, fabric-backed tape.
Pediatric dermatologist Dr. Anthony J. Mancini of Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago said he uses duct-tape therapy for warts in his practice.
"The whole point of this is a non-painful approach," said Mancini, who was not involved in the study.
The study was conducted at the Madigan Army Medical Center near Tacoma, Wash. It began with 61 patients between the ages of 3 and 22, but only 51 patients completed the study.
Of the 26 patients treated with duct tape, 85 percent got rid of their warts compared with 60 percent of the 25 patients who received the freezing treatment.
Researchers did not test the duct tape on older adults and also did not study whether warts recurred.
The apparent curative powers of duct tape are no surprise to Tim Nyberg, one-half of the Duct Tape Guys, who write books and perform comedy about the adhesive's allure. Nyberg said he and his duct tape partner, Jim Berg, do a shtick that includes duct tape wart removal.
"It's the universal panacea," Nyberg said.

Go to a dr and have it frozen off. It takes about 10 min to treat and it falls off in a few days.
You need to remember that it is a virus. It cannot be cured. It may very well come back no matter what you do. Sometimes, they go away on their own too.
