Some Warts are easily removed by freezing them (Cryotherapy) with common brand name liquid nitrogen sprays (Cryogun) like Dr Scholls freeze away, Wart remover. Freeze off and Wart off. They work by freezing the wart or warts and can take as little as a single applications to be successful. A little goes a long way and while blasting the wart will kill it off quicker. It can also damage surrounding tissue, less is sometimes more.
This is best applied as soon as the wart is noticed. Old warts can be extra stubborn and may need to be treated with wart killer first and then frozen with liquid nitrogen for a double dose treatment. If is a good idea to remove as much of the wart surface as it dies off. so you hit fresh material.
Unfortunately, there are no quick and easy ways to treat warts.
In fact, because there are no quick and easy ways to treat warts, many pediatricians suggest that parents simply wait it out, and let the warts go away on their own.
Common Wart Treatments
If you don’t have the patience to wait for a wart to go away on its own, which can take months to years, you can try:
OTC topical liquid or gel wart remover treatments with salicylic acid
OTC wart remover treatments with salicylic acid on a pad
OTC wart remover treatments that freeze warts
Your pediatrician might also try:
cryotherapy – “prescription strength” wart freezing, which may have to be repeated multiple times
cantharidin – not FDA approved in the US, but this blistering agent is often applied to warts to induce them to go away
And of course, your pediatrician might also simply recommend that you wait it out for a few more months or years, as the warts should eventually just go away.
But why not treat the warts if treatments are available? Many experts say that at best, standard wart treatments only work half of the time. And they can be painful or leave scars.
Treating Hard to Control Warts
Again, treating warts is often hard, even in the best of circumstances. Warts can be even harder to treat if they are around your child’s nails (periungal warts) or on the bottom of their feet (plantar warts).
Still, if you are not getting anywhere, you should ask yourself these questions and share the answers with your pediatrician:
Does your child really have warts?
Did you follow the directions on the label carefully?
Are you gently rubbing away hard skin from the surface of the wart with a pumice stone or emery board each week?
Are you softening the skin on and around the wart by soaking the area in warm water for at least 5 minutes before your wart treatments?
Did your child’s wart mostly go away and then come right back in the same spot?
Did your child’s wart completely go away, but new warts came up in different places?
Did your child get a much bigger wart around the site of a previously treated wart (a ring wart)?
A dermatologist can treat your child’s truly resistant warts with cryotherapy, cantharidin, higher strength salicylic acid paste than is available OTC, yeast injections, electrosurgery, or pulsed dye laser therapy, etc.
