Facial warts

I have very small small facial warts around my eyes and some are on chicks.It's hard to remove them by any topical solution since they are very small and are present in sensitive area.What are the ways I can get rid of them and have completely clear skin. The treatment should not do any harm to my skin.

Hi, Treatments may include:

Freezing: In this treatment, a doctor will use liquid nitrogen to freeze a wart. A blister forms around the wart and the dead tissue falls off within about a week.
Cantharidin: This substance, an extract of a blister beetle and applied to the skin, forms a blister around the wart. After cantharidin is applied, the area is covered with a bandage. The blister lifts the wart off the skin so the doctor can remove the dead portion of the wart.
Other medications: These include bleomycin, which is injected into a wart to kill a virus, and Aldara, an immunotherapy drug that comes in the form of a prescription cream. Although Aldara is stated for genital warts, it is modestly effective on other types of warts.
Minor surgery: When warts cannot be removed by other therapies, surgery may be used to cut away the wart. The base of the wart will be destroyed using an electric needle or by cryosurgery (deep freezing).
Laser surgery: This procedure utilizes an intense beam of light (laser) to burn and destroy wart tissue.
