Does Your Kid Have Warts? How to Treat Them

Warts are a skin condition that is typically caused by a strain of the human papilloma virus or by some sort of skin infection. If you have noticed that your child is developing warts on either their hands, fingers, or feet, then you will want to treat the warts as soon as possible because they can spread across their body if left untreated. From at-home wart treatments to getting them professionally taken care of at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa, this article will discuss a few different treatment options that you have. Read on to learn more.

At-Home Treatments
If you go to your drugstore, pharmacy, or supercenter, you should be able to find some over-the-counter wart remedies that you can use to treat your child’s warts. However, depending on how deep your child’s wart(s) is, they may not be quite as effective. The great thing about over-the-counter wart treatments is that there are a bunch of different options including band aids that have the treatment in them or a simply liquid gel that you can paint directly onto your child’s wart. Over-the-counter treatments are pain-free and easy and are worth giving a try.

Professional Treatments
If the over-the-counter treatments aren’t working or if your child’s warts are spreading, then you should contact Cara Mia Medical Day Spa to learn more about your professional treatment options. Depending on what part of the body your child’s warts reside, one of our medical professionals will either remove the wart completely by scraping it off or will freeze it off using liquid nitrogen. Because both procedures are a bit painful, either a numbing agent in the form of a shot will be used or a simple topical numbing cream will be applied.

Get your child back to their normal, comfortable self and get their warts taken care of once and for all. To learn more about wart removal or to schedule an appointment, contact Cara Mia Medical Day Spa today!
