WebMD, Healthline and the American Academy of Dermatology offer detailed information on the best wart-removal methods. You should never use over-the-counter wart-removal products to remove common warts on the face or lips, warns WebMD.
Doctors use several methods to treat facial warts, including freezing them with liquid nitrogen or removing them with lasers or surgery, according to WebMD. Doctors may also prescribe topical immune system stimulants to fight the virus causing the wart. Facial warts are usually not dangerous and eventually go away on their own without treatment. Picking or scratching warts potentially causes them to spread, notes the American Academy of Dermatology.
