Can plantar warts be treated more effectively?

Verruca are viral infestations of the epidermis. Most conventional treatment involves application of chemicals, cutting procedures, or techniques which attempt to destroy the virus. The resulting effect of all procedures is typically a secondary inflammatory response. The inflammatory response probably stimulates an immune response which may ultimately be responsible for the destruction of the viral lesion. A single intradermal injection of bleomycin (off label) into the verruca appears to be 99% successful in treating verruca.
