If it is,do Doc's treat them these days?

It sounds like a verruca. Over-the-counter treatments work fine, ime.

sounds like one. we are bazuka-ing one on ds's foot at the moment. I never took ds to the doctor and am treating with stuff we already had in the house

Seona,my kids have had verrucas before but i've never seen one quite as big as this...do they look purpley underneath aswell?

TBH I would let the doc see it. If it isn't a verrucca and you put caustic stuff on it that could be dangerous.

purpley doesn't sound like a verrucca to me.

oh right...do you have any idea what it could be?

It sounds like it could be a mole or something - I do think you should let the GP see it, just to be on the safe side. It might be a verrucca, but best to be certain.
