  • ask for a referral to a dermatologist. Most warts are bacterial and can be treated or at a certain age remove.

  • I would insist on seeing a dermatologist for sure.

  • Make a paste with aspirin and apply it a couple of times a day. I had a huge one on my face and my cream meds took it off. I ask the pharmacist what happened and he said it has aspirin in it.

  • Deft see a dermatologist. While your waiting for an apt try putting scotch tape over all her warts when y'all are at home. This will help the body notice them and naturally fight them off over time.

  • Old wives tales, cover with apple cidar vinegar, don't rub it in. Then soak a gauze pad in apple cidar vinegar , put over the wart, cover w/a bandage to hold in the moisture. Leave on overnight, remove in the morning, but don't rinse off the vinegar. Repeat each night until the wart is gone. Another, may sound way crazy but has been used, take an extremely very ripe banana peel, (black) put a small square section of peel over the wart and cover w/a bandage, repeat each night until the wart is gone. I've read this in 2 different books on usages in the past before modern medicines. Other than that, I too would call a dermatologist.

  • dermatalogist. My friend tried all the old wives tales with her son & nothing worked. He had to have them surgically removed.

  • I actually just read a couple in a book I have by Reader's Digest.
    One says to get freshly cut dandelion stalks or fig leaves. Use the milky sap that exudes from the dandelion stalks or fig leaves and apply directly to the wart once or twice a day for several days or until the wart pulls away from the skin. Kee the sap away from the skin around the wart and from sensetive areas such as the eyes. If you are using this treatment on a child, cover the wart area with a bandage to prevent spreading the sap to sensitive skin.
