Warts are a common occurrence in children. Many parents are alarmed when their children develop warts, but they can rest assured that warts do not signify a problem with the immune system.

Warts are a harmless pediatric skin infection caused by a virus, and they can spread to different areas of the body and from person to person. To lessen the spread of warts, it is helpful for parents to discourage their children from scratching, picking, or biting them. Warts that develop on the fingers or hands can be especially troublesome. Putting a small bandage over warts can help prevent irritation and the habit of picking at the spots.

There are different types of warts, and knowing what type your child has can help you provide the best treatment.

  • Common Warts – These warts are the most typical warts that people think of when they imagine a wart. They are rough bumps on the skin. Most often occurring on the hands, but they can pop up anywhere on the skin. They may bleed if picked at.
  • Filiform Warts – These look like small skin tags. They often show up around the corner of the eyes, eyelids, mouth, and nose.
  • Plantar Warts –These warts are typically found on the soles of the feet or the bottom of the toes. They can be quite painful, as they can grow large and develop deep in the skin.
  • Flat Warts – These resemble small, flat, smooth bumps. They are most common on the face.

Treatment for Warts

Most warts will go away on their own, but it will often take several months or years. Many children are bothered by their warts (both physically and emotionally), so many parents choose to have warts removed. Medical Dermatology Specialists provides a variety of wart treatment options depending on your child’s specific type of wart. We offer the safest and most effective solutions that will eliminate your child’s current warts and prevent recurrences.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
