Child wart

I have a 6 year old daughter, she has a wart directly under her bottom lip-line. Can anyone suggest anything to get rid of it?

Thanks

In a young person, and with the wart so close to the mouth, it is probably not advisable to treat it but instead to allow it to resolve naturally and discourage your daughter from touching it.

Aggressive anti-wart therapy would also most likely be more disfiguring than the wart itself - a classic case of the cure being worse than the condition.

You sure about that, chris. In a young person, warts can be very aggressive, and spreading is common. As we age, we develop resistance to them, and eventually stop getting them, but in a 6-year-old, it could get bad. I certainly agree that the wrong therapy can leave awful scars bigger than the wart was. This has to be handled delicately, but the child may need the right therapy.

Tracey, I suppose the very least you could do is take her to the chemist and ask the  pharmacist and see what he/she says......good luck.

 iquimod 5% cream is a patient-applied therapy that directly enhances the immune response to HPV and is safe and effective for the treatment of warts.In fact, more of 90% of warts will be destroyed by immune system's response in 9-12 months. The trade name of the drug is ALDARA.

Use a Banana Peel.  Take a fresh banana, cut a small peice of the peel just big enough to cover the wart with a little excess, place on wart cover with medical tape and leave on over night.  Do this till it's gone, our experience..it took three nights till the warts were gone for good.  You can also try a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar and distilled water 50/50.  Put on the wart several times a day, let it dry.  Good luck, six year olds may not be up for either one.  I first tried the otc freezing chemicals on my daughter and forget the commercials...IT HURTS!

Getting your child to eat more potassium (eat the banana) may help too.  Good Luck.

My friend's son had warts that started to appear around his mouth. He also had them on his hands and knees. They decided to get them "burnt" off at the doctor's. About 5 were treated and the rest disappeared over the following 2 weeks. The idea was that if you can weaken the virus enough the body then takes over and does the rest.
Other people find the homeopathic remedy, Thuja quite good especially for children.

Clear nail varnish does the trick! Paint the wart and replace when it flakes off as the wart shrinks works every time :)using coloured nailvarnish is unsightly.

Try using wartrol. It's an over the counter product that helps remove the warts by suffocating it. Ask your doctor about it. If you feel it might be too severe for your 6 year old daughter then try using home remedies instead. I found some great home remedies for warts here - newbielink:http://wartremovalexperts.com/ [nonactive]
