Question:
My 12 year old daughter has warts on her thumbs on both sides of her nails, her dermatologist prescribed a special compound to use twice a day for two months. Warts are still here and now he suggests still using compound and also efudex on them. Is this a good remedy. I am concerned. Why can't we use regular methods to eliminate the warts?

Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry, There are numerous possibilities for treatment of warts. These include a weak acid compound that is used on the warts. Efudex is also a recommended treatment for warts as are several others... I would speculate that you are probably talking about cryotherapy (cold therapy) when you write about more regular therapy. This is also a possibility although usually painful for the child... In conclusion, it is difficult to comment on the best treatment for your child warts without seeing the warts. This is often the case for dermatological problems where treatment is individualised to a patient specific medical condition.
