My 6 yr old dd appears to have two verrucas on her foot, one os in the pad of her big toe and is a little uncomfortable, it's only just appeared I think. Do I need to do anything? Take her to the dr? Chiropodist? Boots (the chemist) Tia
go to boots and buy some verucca treatment, the super strength works quicker but the original gets there in the end. apart from anything else, it stops you getting them as they are not contagious when the stuff is on them
I was told to just leave them alone when DD had one, unless they are causing discomfort.
Doctors won't do anything initially and the over the counter treatments take ages to work. In our experience the verruca came out on its own after a few weeks anyway. In the time DD had one neither DH or myself got one despite her being barefoot at home all the time.
My dd recently had 3 on her foot. Took her to docs & he prescribed Salbutamol acid which hurt when we put it on.
What eventually got rid of them was taping banana skin to her veruccas at night and leaving her sock on overnight. Its supposed to help cut off the blood supply and after 4 nights her veruccas had come off. Initially it turns them black. I just cleaned them with baby wipe each morning.
Lots of people swear by this. Just google banana verucca. Worked brilliantly for my dd.
Veruccas will eventually disappear when the body's immune system identifies them and kills them off. All you can do with a treatment is try and accelerate the process of your immune system identifying them but there's actually no evidence that any of them work. That's why your doctor won't give you anything because he/she knows it's a waste of time.
When I was a kid I had all of the available treatments and none of them got rid of the veruccas. Eventually they just disappeared.
