help.... my DS [7yo] has had this lump on the sole of his foot for a few weeks now. i thought it would go away but it hasnt.

i always thought veruccas had a black spotblush but this is quite yellow. no one has had one before so i am not sure but we go swimming regularly.

should i try and treat at home or wait for my doctors appointment next week.

any advice for me???

Before stopping off at the GP why not pop into a pharmacy and ask for their advice? IME they are jolly good at this sort of thing.

Things like bazooka do work eventually, but they take forever. I had 15 verrucas when I was pg with ds so I'm a bit of an expert now (they all disappeared of their own accord after he was born, it was probably due to lowered immunity)

this site has some good advice.

I was told gaffa tape was the best cure, put a little piece over the verruca, but be prepared to do this for many months.
