My ds (aged 9) has had several warts and verrucas for I er a year and a half now (some quite big. The ones on his hands in particular cause him some distress (he has emotional SEN and so hates feeling he's different; cruel remarks from classmates etc, and they often bleed if he catches them). He has been so upset that he has attempted to pull them off on numerous occasions.

We saw our doctor about them approx 6 months ago but she advised there was nothing she could do and to just wait for them to go.

I have tried every over the counter remedy available but with no luck (except losing £s & £s in the process).

Any advice?

There are a number of things I have read on being to cover the wart in duct tape and the other being to paint it with clear nail polish. They may be worth trying. I know warts are upsetting...I had a lot at a similar age.

I've used duct tape on ds7, successfully but you need to stick at it and put it on every night
