Treatment of Warts in Children
This is the one "treatment" option that can safely be tried anywhere on the body. A few studies suggest that warts will go away faster if they are "wished away." This method, sometimes called "hypnotic suggestion," has no risks associated with it and may also be helpful in combination with other therapies.
For a few minutes each day, help your child imagine that the wart is shrinking, perhaps thinking about special cells in their body "fighting off" the wart germs. You may want to sprinkle a "magic potion" on the wart, using something harmless like water.
Next you can learn about other home treatments, skip to treatments used by doctors or exit the guide.
