joannqn Posted February 11, 2012 Share Posted February 11, 2012 My 4 year old has one of these right up against the side of his fingernail. At first, I thought it was just skin damage from his constant biting of his nails (a habit we finally broke). I thought it might heal with time. Instead of getting better, it has gotten worse and has become obvious that it is a wart. It's growing larger/taller and rough and looks just like a regular wart except in shape due to its location. I know the doctor's offices like to treat warts by freezing them. I also know that's rather painful. I think this one's location would make freezing it more difficult, more painful, and less successful. He's also pretty sensitive with cold to begin with. Has anyone successfully treated these? What do you think would be best for a 4 year old? Any chance it will just go away on its own? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
