I gave up, it wasn't worth the terror of my children to do something that really was just a cosmetic annoyance.
But then I read in a old all natural book that the milky sap from the dandelion plant applied for several weeks will remove warts. Crazy Right? Well it works! That spring and summer when I took the children out for daily play we picked dandelions as always to feed to the rabbits and I would rub the milk onto their warts. Two weeks later the warts disappeared on their own! Not only did they disappear, the treatment didn't irritate their skin and left no scars. It was as if the warts had never been their.
I told my doctor about it today and he that dandelion sap can work. Dandelions contain silicon that irritates the wart causing the immune system to "wake up" and notice that the wart is there. Then, due to this irritation, the body kills the wart from the inside out. It appears from the outside that the wart just shrinks and eventually disappears.
Consider the difference in using this on children! Instead of pain, screaming, toxic chemicals, open wounds, and fear, you have a gentle and even fun remedy that will never cause your child to show a marked amount of distrust when you tell them "This wont really hurt honey". Also it is something even small children can do on their own.
