How to Be a Better Dad: My Kid has Warts

Dear SingleDad,

My name is Dennis and I am a 43-year old Divorced Dad with a
12-year old son who is driving me crazy with his wart problem. It seems that
summertime he "breaks out" with plantar warts. I am sure you have a few members
with kids who run into this problem. It seems like we go to a few summer events
such as pool parties or summer picnics; my son gets warts. Can you give me some
advice on how to treat these pesky little bumps? Most of the over the counter
stuff doesn’t seem to help. They hurt his skin more than help the situation. My
son is 12 years old and these are the years where every kid likes to pick on
each other and my son is miserable and embarrassed right now.

Your Dad advice is appreciated.

Dear Dennis,

Now I am not a doctor, but I did some research online and
discovered that there might be a few remedies to your son’s plantar wart
problem.

First off, you will need a lot of patience. The fact is Dennis;
plantar warts are a virus that can last weeks, months and sometimes years in
the body. They are a form of (HPV) human papillomavirus, which in case you
haven’t heard; school districts across the US are now recommending a (HPV)
vaccine to help ward off a variety of virus’s including STD’s. I know this is
more info than you need to know for a 12-year old son, but HPV is more common
than you think.

HPV- Warts Virus

These painful growths are caused when the virus enters your
skin and expands inward. This can be a problem because you need to dig deep to
get down to reach the spores. My recommendation is to use a course pumice stone
to file down the dead skin area of the wart. Then apply Forces of Nature Wart
Control (ForcesOfNatureUSA.com) $27,
which contains natural extracts with antiviral properties including tea tree
oil. The Forces of Nature treatment is safer on your skin than the normal; acid
based remedies because it does not damage the healthy skin around the wart.

If this treatment doesn’t show improvement in a month, go
see a dermatologist. More intense treatments can involve injecting the wart
with a small amount of Candida yeast, which encourages your body’s immune
system to launch an attack on the wart. Either way, make sure in the future to
keep your feet covered in "high risk" areas for bare feet such as public pools
and gym locker rooms.

As far as your son’s friends picking on him; give you son a
healthy distraction like buying him some cool sandals or flip-flops. Turn a
negative into a positive. You can see a variety of sandals at REI.com that are
both cool looking and ergonomic for his feet. Keep me
posted on your results.
