... I have had warts all my life on my hands, usually just 1 or 2 and have had them burnt of in the past with liquid nitrogen (I think) however that was very painful.

When I was pregangt with DS2 I had 1 on my hand and it dosappeared completely and I haven't had any since. Unfortunately looks like DS2 has got the virsu. he ahs a couple of large ones on his fingers right on the nails. Unfortunatley he keeps picking and scratching them , they bleed and look really unslightly.

The stuff in the chemists says not for under 4 years and he is 3.

..anyone else had a child with these and any idea on how to get rid of them.

(old wives tails, but not one involving dead slugs please!! my mum when I was younger tried to convinve me to rub a slog on them!!!

I had one on my hand when I was little. My mum used to make me rub a little piece of raw steak on it & then bury it .................why ???????

mine used to come and go as a child, DS2 just seem to be gettting bigger.

I was also told dip your hand into some water that blacksmiths use for cooling the hot iron, but not many of them down the local high street.

Had heard the burying one before.

(PS.. Old wives tales...not tails, I cam spell really).

A friend's 3 year old had them clustered round her nose. She'd tried loads of things, nothing worked and they kept growing back. She then had a session of homeopathy or two, can't remember, and they dropped off never to return.

I have heard that if you rub the inside of a pea pod on it it will go. Worth a try. HAven't tried it myself though.
