Have noticed some spots clustered on my finger and I certain its warts, I have no idea how i have got them but as now concernered I could pass them onto my baby. What can I do to get rid if them and should I keep them covered with a plaster or something in the mean time??

Thanks and think I might name change to WitchWhoLovesbeingAMummy!!!!!

No. You cant pass them on,you can buy stuff over the counter or get them burnt off at docs.(or used to be able to) I had some years ago and they had just vanished one morning.

Sorry but is that right snala? I thought you could pass them on.

I;d advise calling NHS24, it's what they're there for.

My dd (6yo) had a wart on her finger. We were given some Salactol to try and it worked a treat!

It said it could take up to 12 weeks to go and it was gone after 4 applications.

I too thought you can pass them on, but I'm certainly no medical expert.

Hope you get them cleared up
