I'm looking for a doctor to help my son with some warts on his hand. I would love anyone's suggestions for the best doctor in the northwest Houton.
Thanks
Rebecca

Hey! I know this wasn't what you were asking for, but breastmilk works for warts if you're still nursing. DH spent all kinds of money getting his warts frozen off, etc and they'd always come back. After I had DS I put breastmilk on a piece of gauze and DH would hold it on his warts for a few minutes at night. He did this for a couple of weeks, maybe. Those warts started shrinking, went away and never came back! I think I read about it in Mothering magazine.

Oh, and Krenie Stowe is a good doctor, but she's in the Woodlands.

I *AM* looking for your advice! Thanks so much. I just searched mothering and got the following tips:
breastmilk
banana peels
duct tape
OTC stuff
I will do breastmilk and the banana peel. I have a little theory that the warts seem to like light, I'm wondering if band aids/duct tape might help?
any advice is welcome!
Thanks
Rebecca

Just wanted to add my .02 and say that I had several warts when I was young and got them frozen off once by a doctor, only to have them come back (and at the time I thought the process really hurt!)

They went away eventually, but it took a few years. Good luck!

I had so many warts as a kid; it was awful. Literally, my hands were covered. We tried so many painful things, and I have some scars on my hands now. After the "procedures" they always came back...UNTIL I went through puberty. And then literally almost overnight they were gone! So weird. But boy was I happy! I don't know if hormones have something to do with it or if it was some weird coincidence, but I didn't do anything for them to disappear. It just seemed like a miracle!

Just saying that because if my kids have warts, I'll always keep it mind that puberty might change things. Otherwise, I'll be doing the breastmilk treatments and other natural stuff. Even the OTC treatments are harsh, painful and can cause scarring.

Well, not sure if its puberty...But, most of the warts are gone! I used duct tape on them for almost 2 weeks. Anytime we took the duct tape off, I rubbed the warts with the inside of the banana peel. Duct tape and the banana peel worked!
Just wanted to share because I'm so excited it was so easy!
