Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Question about WARTS....OT
Hey guys, me again. I don't post for weeks and then I am a post hog, lol. Adam had one little wart on his foot about a month ago. I treated it with OTC wart medicine. Well, I noticed just last night, he has 5 now!!! Yes, 5 of them on the same foot in the same area. WTH?? I mean, he gets baths at night, he wears socks with his shoes...I just can't figure this out. He and Nate have their own bath tub that they share. He doesn't play outside with no shoes, hasn't been swimming in forever. DH said he got planters warts as a kid...is this genetic? Sorry...to be quite honest, I just don't want people to think we are "dirty" people. I am glad we see the ped tomorrow...I wonder if she will "freeze them off"?? I know nothing about warts. If any of you can shed some light, I would so appreciate it...TIA :)

Planter's warts can spread like crazy. They branch out and the OTH can't usually take care of them. They have deep roots. I don't know about it being genetic but I get them from time to time. They only thing that gets rid of them completely for me is having the doc freeze them off. I never go out barefoot either and don't go to the pool. I think it just happens. It also has nothing with you being "dirty people" but it is embarressing.

Warts are just a virus that manifests on the skin which is why they come and go no matter what you do to them. Some people are more prone to the virus then others. Some can be very stubborn and require multiple times of OTC treatment to go away. You can have them frozen off if you want to but personally I wouldn't at that age. It can be incredibly painful. For something that really is harmless and not doing his body any damage I would just give it time and cover it with an OTC kit if you don't want to look at it. I have had many large ones frozen off and I swear I could have passed out from the pain of freezing them even after being numbed up.

Yes having them frozen off can hurt esp the deep ones. I'm not sure what they will do for a kid. I did take pills for it at one point. That did help for a little while. But it came back. As long as you are going in for his appt. I'd have them looked at and see what can be done. I've also heard that if you put duct tape over it that will kill them. Never tried it though. Hey maybe you have to ask Mel if vinegar can treat them. LOL:)

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
I'm sorry..when we started to talk about this on the other page, I forgot in our silliness.

I will tell you this but don't think I'm crazy. My niece had them on her hand for years. My sis did everything...even had them burned at the dr's office (I think-it was a long time ago). I was skeptical of course, but she had some old person nearby do a thing where they touch them and say some kind of prayer or something and THEY WENT AWAY AND NEVER CAME BACK! I mean these things had been there for several years. They were embarassing her at school.

I don't have any "practical" help, lol.

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
When I was little, I had some. The doc had my parents buy me these little pads with some sort of acid on them (not sure what was in them...the doc would know). I had to soak my foot, and then my mom or dad would use a RAZOR BLADE to shave away the top layers of the wart (it would bleed but didn't hurt). Then they would clean it and apply one of the pads. They did this every day. Basically what it did was keep pulling the wart closer and closer to the surface until it was finally "out." It worked. I STILL get them, even though I never pull a Britney in gas station bathrooms and wear flip-flops in hotels...HTH
Check with your
doctor first!
