  • my kids have them too. they've all just about passed them on to each other in baths or pools. the qiucker and more consistent you are in treatng them, the less likely they will reappear. my 3 year old had one removed and it started 12 more so weve just had those treated and they should probably go away after this. nothing we can do at home but try to prevent others from getting them but its a virus and can be dormant for years. not much diferent than warts really. maybe one day there will be over the counter meds but not yet.
