I had a very stubborn and painful plantar wart for 5 years which did not respond to any home treatments or over the counter treatments (acid/freeze away). With no results on my own, I decided to enlist the help of a podiatrist. The course of treatment was two fold- he zapped the wart with the pulse dye laser during one session and then 2 - 3 weeks later I came back and had the wart 'painted' with beetle venom (canthrone - from the blister beetle). In total I had 3 venom sessions and about 5 laser sessions. There was no one treatment that worked for me, however by combining the two treatments, I finally found relief. My foot wart free for over 3 years now and the skin at the wart site looks almost seamless.
