Can I stop my child’s wart from spreading?

It can be difficult to keep warts from spreading. Ideally warts should not be touched, and children who pick at their wart may cause the wart to spread. If your child is picking at a wart, this is a good indication for treatment. In this circumstance, selecting a treatment that involves covering the wart to discourage touching the wart is ideal. Nail biting should also be discouraged since it can result in warts around the nail bed called periungul warts.
