Did you know your kids have about a 50% chance of getting a wart at some time in their life? There are different kind of warts and is actually caused by a wart virus. The most common place for them to occur is on the hands or fingers. However there are other types of warts such as plantar warts, genital warts, flat warts, and the molluscum contagiosum wart. |
The different warts can be determined by their location and how painful they are. The most common wart that appears on the hand or fingers is normally painless, however the plantar warts, which occur on the bottom of your feet, can be painful. Warts that appear on the face are called flat warts. Warts that show up around the fingernail or toenail are called Periungal warts.
These warts will have one thing in common and that is that the skin will develop a rough and irregular surface where they appear. They will usually have a dome shape.

Normally warts will come and go at different stages of a child's life, and will usually go away on their own. However some warts can be painful, spread rapidly and hang around for years. In these cases it's best to seek treatment for them. The most common way to remove a wart will be to freeze it off with liquid nitrogen. The procedure is relatively painless but blisters may form later which can be painful and some warts will require more than one treatment for complete removal. Another common treatment for warts is salicylic acid. For difficult wart removals they may try intralesional immune-therapy, bleomycin, or a pulsed dye laser. They may use something called Aldara in the worst cases.
Some people will prefer to use a home remedy of using duct tape. Using this method you would cover the wart with duct tape for 6 days, and if it should come lose before then it should be reapplied. After the 6 days are up the wart should be soaked in water, then use a pumice stone or emery board to scrape off the top of the wart. Then the duct tape is reapplied again within 24hrs and the whole process is repeated as long as needed to get rid of the wart. This method could take up to 2 months to completely get rid of the wart. I don't about you but I think I'd opt for one of the over the counter options that are available today that allow you to freeze the wart off.
