What can everyone suggest as the best treatment?

We used thuja tablets, fell off within a week.

I have had no success with bazooka (sp?) and I am now trying duck tape on DD age 5. I have not heard of thuja tablets. Will google. Sorry for hijacking julie.

Duct tape, I am not with it today.

I had a cluster verruca that had been there for a few years and recently used the bazuka gel - got rid of it within a fortnight.

Have tried various things for my DS, bazuka and duct tape. Best one we have found is a freezing treatment by Scholl. It is a bit uncomfortable for about 30 seconds, but verucca should be gone in a week or two. On a couple of occasions have had to repeat but always works.

Cider vinegar with the duct tapes works wonders

See the bloody duct tape keeps falling off. This is my issue!

Is it causing problems? Generally, if it's not painful or problematic, it is okay to leave it and most go on their own.

DD had a hideous one and it was v sore and right on the bottom of her big toe. The freezing stuff didn't work and we thought the bazuka wasn't working but dd finally admitted she was peeling it off as soon as she was in bed. We told her to leave well alone and it was gone within a few days of daily treatment and filing.

Wartner freeze treatment - needed two treatments a month apart. Then went black and fell off. We had try other things for DS - including leaving them alone (they started to spread)

None of the over the counter stuff works. The only thing we've had any success with is Laser treatment which works really quickly.

Just finished using wartner on my daughters verruca, didn't do anything. Tried duct tape held on with strong fabric plasters for 6 consecutive days & nights, advised by Dr, verruca gone!! Job done ��
