Touching a wart, irritates it and helps it to become bigger because the red blood cells spread. If there is a wart on your foot, do not walk barefoot as warts are infectious and it could spread to other people. Stick an adhesive tape to a wart for 7 days. On removal you will find that the wart has come off with it. Castor oil is another popular home remedy, regularly apply castor oil to the wart and it dies out. Heating the wart sometimes kills the bacteria that are causing it. But this works in only certain types of warts. Doctors generally use freezing to get rid of the wart. They use liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart, this dries out the wart and it comes off easily.
Cover it with Oil of Oregano daily till it dies.
It depends what kind of wart it is. If it is a planters wart you will probably need to get it removed from a laser. I have personal experience with this, I've had a planters wart on the bottom of my foot, those warts are pretty severe, and I had to get it removed with a laser.
