How do I get rid of a small planters wart?

My son has a small planters wart on his hand, is this something I should take him to the doctor for or is this something I can treat at home?

Try this home remedy:
Soak the wart in apple cider vinegar for 15-20 minutes. Gently rub dead tissue with a pumice stone. Apply petroleum jelly around the wart to protect the skin, cover the wart with a cider-soaked piece of cotton ball, and cover the cotton ball with an adhesive bandage. The treatment is repeated until the wart go away.
