There are plenty of ideas and ways how to suffocate a wart. The idea is to eliminate air to reach the virus, to cause it to slow down, and die. The most simple advise is to use duck-tape. Before you apply it, clean the skin with soap and water, than when the skin is still damp, use a air tight duck tape to cover the wart. This can be a slow process, and take several days or weeks. Some advice not to change the tape, others advice to change it daily (to keep place clean).
Instead of duck-tape you can use any kind of air tight tape, scotch tape, masking tape. Cut a piece which is large enough to cover the wart and skin around it, and press if firmly over the wart.

Removing Wart From Foot – My Story
The remedy I personally used to get rid of a wart on my daughter foot was – GARLIC. She was complaining that her feet were itching! She had a cluster of three warts red and ugly. I took one garlic I have peeled it from the dry cover, and cut into half. I have placed the open side with the juice wet part over the wart, and held it for about 10 minutes. I have refreshed the garlic wet juice by slicing a small bit off and placed it for 10 more minutes.
The next day, the wart stopped itching, and the day after it faded away.
Thats how I got rid of the wart on the toe of my daughter.
