Hi
Warts are a common term used  to describe various types of skin problems on the face. The most common ones are viral warts, these are infection of HPV virus on the face. These are recurring. However these need to be treated as they can  spread over the face as well as body and from one person to the other.
The other conditions which are commonly confused for warts are called DPNS or skin tags. These are non infectious and are seen commonly over the face, neck and underarms and also tends to run in some families. These recurr only after s long time after treatment.
Both these conditions can only be treated by cryotherapy or radio frequency treatments ot lasers and there are no  creams which can treat them.
Do check with your dermatologist as to which kind of warts you have. If you indeed have viral warts you may need some additional creams to prevent recurrence
