5yo with warts all over hands

My 5yo daughter with sensory processing disorder will not tolerate anyone or anything messing with her hands. She got a wart on her hand about 3 years ago, & our PCP said to wait it out. She now has about 40 of them, including one on her nose. We tried cimetidine for a month with no change, and she stopped tolerating the awful taste. Topicals are out because she sucks her fingers and rubs her eyes constantly. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I was 6 or 7 when I had enough and wanted my warts gone. After seeing a TV commercial, I asked my mom for "Compound W." I applied it religiously as directed and it worked.  

If she wants them gone, you might have to tell her that once she can stop the habits you described, topical medicine will work.
