Beware: I would strongly encouraged you to avoid over the counter wart removers, whether it be salicylic acid based or cold based when addressing genital warts. That area is quite sensitive and is best addressed by your primary care doctor or dermatologists. Remember you can do more harm than good trying to treat these at home. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: i've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sorta.: Side effects are that it is going to burn off the wart. Local irritation and some pain are sorta guaranteed. Other options of surgical removal or doctor done freezing and removal are not going to be less traumatic. Waiting and seeing if they go away are one option. Running ALDARA (imiquimod) by the pediatrician is the most expensive and least traumatic method to treat warts BUT it is NOT FDA approved for it ...Read more
Seborrheic Keratosis: Freezing with liquid nitrogen (cryosurgery). Cryosurgery can be an effective way to remove seborrheic keratoses. However, it may not work on large, thick growths, and it may lighten the treated skin (hypopigmentation).

Are salicylic acid 40% wart remover pads safe for use on a 3 year old? There is no age on the box and he has had the wart for over a year.
Please read-depends.: This is very toxic if there is contact with mouth/oral mucosa. The location of the wart matters. On the planter surface of feet, it is safe, since it is kept covered. On hands it would be ill advised at that age, since itcan get to the mouth. Nighttime usage with a bandage can be attempted if you are comfortable. ...Read more

4yr old with molluscum on abdomen for 6 months. Do not want to do freeze or anything that will hurt him. Would liquid wart remover work?
Wart magic: Molluscum warts like all warts caused by viruses. They are difficult to control. You can try a liquid wart remover. Another trick is to cover the wart with a square of duct tape and secure the duct tape on the skin with any tape designed for the skin as duct tape does not stick well to skin. Cover it for about and week or until irritation is noted. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My bf has a wart on his hand.He's tried OTC freeze off, liquid wart remover, also saw a dr. Who tried to freeze it & its still there.Whats left to try?
Freeze: Freezing with nitrous oxide or liquid nitrogen will destroy most, but may require several treatments. The wart has layers like an onion, and some are below the skin surface.If you only destroy the top part, it regrows from below.I routinely freeze them, cut the dead skin off and freeze again and recheck them in a week for final touch up as needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
