What Should I do if my Child has a Wart?

If your child has a single wart in a place that is somewhat hidden, you may want to simply leave it alone. While they are unsightly, warts will eventually go away on their own, although it may take months or even years. If the wart is in a conspicuous place or they are spreading to other parts of the body, you can try an over-the-counter wart medication. If this doesn’t clear up the problem, your best bet may be a visit to the dermatologist, who can burn or freeze the wart(s) off.
