Three Year Old Has Wart On Lip?

My three year old has developed a wart on her lip, and my wife refuses to take her to the dermatoligist to be removed due to the pain involved. Is there a topical solution or oral that I can administer to my little girl that will get rid of the wart? Thanks Confused

You could always call a dr and see what they recomend? But other than that i'm not sure, i've never had to deal with a wart. Sorry i couldn't be more help! Sad GOOD LUCK THOUGH!

The doctor recommended numbing it with a needle, and burning/freezing it off, but said it was rather painful. My wife does not want her to go through that. He recommended time, that it would go away eventually, but it has grown enough for my daughter to pull at it and I am getyting concerned.

How in the world do you numb it with a needle? But yea i would be concerned to and if she was my daughter i don't think i would want to try that with her either. Sounds like it coul be really painful...and good luck with getting her to stay there while you/both of you do that. I'm not sure what advice to give you but hopefully someone on here has more information on here than i do. You can always try googling something like wart removal and just see what you get? Sorry i didn't have more info for you! GOOD LUCK!

Hi
Not really sure where you are located, but a good dermotologist can freeze this off without having to inject any needles into this child. I have a wonderful dermotologist who is excellent with children and senior citizens. I think finding the right doctor would help!
