Active Comparator: Pyruvic acid
Patients will receive pyruvic acid solution 70% prepared by solving of pyruvic acid in water/ethanol solution. Patients will be advised to apply the solution twice daily for a period of four weeks. Application of petrolatum to the surrounding normal skin protects against the corrosive effect of the concentrated acid.
Drug: Pyruvic acid
Active Comparator: Salicylic acid
Patients will receive a combination of salicylic acid 16.7%, lactic acid 16.7%, and collodion 100%. Patients will be advised to apply the solution twice daily for a period of four weeks. Application of petrolatum to the surrounding normal skin protects against the corrosive effect of the concentrated acid.
Drug: Salicylic Acid
- Wart number [ Time Frame: From before to 3 months after ]Patients will be visited every two weeks for one month and then every month for up to 3 months by a dermatologist. On each visit, warts will be inspected to determine the number of warts. Any wart totally non-detectable by inspection and touch will be considered as healed.
- Wart size [ Time Frame: From before to 3 months after ]Patients will be visited every two weeks for one month and then every month for up to 3 months by a dermatologist. On each visit, warts will be inspected to determine the size of warts. The size of the warts will be calculated as the mean size of all the warts.
