Flat warts on leg

I have had flat warts on my leg for about 8 months now. I have tried nail polish and I am currently trying super glue. These are just things I read about to try. It works on the smaller ones but seems to just irritate the bigger ones. I'm not sure how much longer I can deal with it anymore. I have to go couple days without shaving my leg to try and let the treatments work. Of course that hurts because it'll give me heat bumps and the glue like rips my skin off if I move it the wrong way. So somebody please help me..

For small warts, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.

In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get these warts evaluated. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
