At first I thought I stepped on a sea urchin when I got the wart. I'm in the water all the time, on boats, around pools, on the beach. I'm a scuba instructor and a surfer. I got really worried when I could barely walk on my foot because the wart was getting big and I was not at all keen on having it cut off since I have no insurance and can't afford the time off my feet. I friend of mine got them all the time and she suggested this remedy which seems to work like a charm. But you have to be diligent about it:

Salicylic acid is key. After a shower or soaking your feet at night, use a pumice stone to scrub off any excess skin and scrub hard. Then crush up some aspirin and add enough water to make it pasty. Apply the paste to the wart(s) then use one of those spot bandages to cover it up. Leave it on while sleeping, take it off when you wake up, then use tea tree oil or eucalyptus oil throughout the day after your feet get wet. I use Burt's Bee's Wax Herbal Blemish Stick, it has all those oils plus salicylic acid throughout the day. All this has been working so far but I understand I have to be religious about the treatment for she said two weeks otherwise the virus comes back. Beats the heel out cutting them out or freezing them...
