If you have a good immunity system, the warts may disappear untreated in a few months or years. But often the warts are only increasing, both in number and size. If the skin is very thin or the wart is buried not very deep , you can use a local medical treatment with drugs containing fluorouracil and salicylic acid or monochloracetine, as well as the use of cryotherapy. In old, deeply burried warts or in a case of thicker skin these therapies can be ineffective and the warts often reoccur.
