My ds (9) has got this and he has unsightly spots on his neck which makes him very self conscious.
Has anyone managed to get rid if it. The doctor said let it run it course (can take over18 months to go naturally). We are trying tea tree oil and thuja but they are still not going. Any advice appreciated.
I am not 100% sure what the cream was as HV prescribed it- we had two lots - an oily one at night and a less oily one for during the day. In particularly bad break outs we had steroid cream too. Her backs of legs and armpits were so sore bless her- but nothing now at all.
Dd had it from age 6 months to about 18 months mainly on the backs of her knees, inside her elbows and on her torso. Avoid squeezing them, they will leave tiny dimpled scars.
I tried a few treatments but nothing helped. They didn't bother her and interestingly the cleared up after a summer holiday abroad. No idea if connected to the sunshine she was then exposed to or if they were just clearing up at that time anyway.
My DS (2) has had it for about a year and I have tried a few things, but nothing made any difference. It looks as if the last few warts are now scabbing up and there are no new ones appearing. Phew! It does go eventually.
DS (4) had this earlier this year. It was only on his buttocks but the spots irritated him and he scratched them making them look worse, they then started to spread the back of his knees. I went back to the GP to ask if there was anything they could prescribe for the itching and she recommended Eurax which you can buy over the counter and is non-steriod. Anyway, it cleared it up completely within a couple of weeks and it hasn't returned. I think the scratching was causing it to spread. Might be worth considering.
