My son had 5 plantar warts on one foot and 3 on the other. We had let them go for a few months not knowing what they were and assuming they would go away on their own, so they were a reasonable size by the time I took him to the doctor.
The options offered to us were to have them frozen by the doc (approx 4-5 treatments required and apparently very painful), or to use salicylic acid (not painful but the doc said this would take approx 8-12 weeks on the warts my son had).
Not wanting to put my 7 year old son through unnecessary pain, I ended up using the salicylic acid plus Oregano and Thieves oils. I put the acid on for 1.5 weeks to eat away at the thick callused skin over the top of the wart, then rubbed the callused skin off with a pumice stone. This allowed me to get to the heart of the wart with the Oregano and Thieves.
We then applied Oregano and Thieves to each wart twice a day and then covered the warts with waterproof bandaids or duct tape. I was amazed that the warts were all gone in only 3 weeks (not 8-12 weeks as stated by the doctor using just salicylic acid).
