Ok, what's the best treatment for children. My daughter has one on each foot and bazooka is just making it look worse.

Hi we've finally got rid of three of the buggars on dd's foot (the joys of swimming lessons eh). We persevered with the bazooka, but it did take weeks, and yes they get to look a lot worse first.


Dd's turned black and scabbed over. They also sometimes grow 'a root', - which DH pulled out with tweezers in two of them- cue much squirting blood and hysteria from dd, but they did clear much quicker than the other one then!

Ps disclaimer- I'm not a health professional and have no idea if pulling them out by the root is recommended, but it worked for dd!

Bazooka can take months. You need to follow the exact instructions. (Eg soak and scrape)
