Pediatric Treatment for Warts
Kids’ nail-biting habits and, sometimes, questionable hygiene routines make them especially prone to warts, those benign growths that develop after skin contact with the human papillomavirus. They can show up anywhere on your child’s body and come in many forms—from skin-toned and raised to flat and darkened. Some are painless, while others cause discomfort, especially plantar warts, which appear on the soles of the feet. Either way, it’s never been easier to remove warts, whether through potent topical medication, cold/heat therapy, or minor, in-office surgical procedures. Stop in and chat with our pediatric dermatologist who can walk you through all the options.
