Warts

There are two common types of warts found in kids. Typical warts on hands, knees, feet, and very small little bumps/warts on trunk of younger children called Molluscum Contagiosum. Both of these types of warts will usually spontaneously resolve, however this may take up to a year. Some OTC meds will help but are not usually very effective. Some parents have had luck with using "duct tape". The areas of the warts are soaked in water and the tape is applied and left on over night. The family can then try and file or trim down the wart (pain allowing), each day. This needs to be done for at least 1 month.
