He’s cov­ered in warts!

Dear Jayda

M y 5-year-old son has loads of warts, mostly be­hind his ear, in his armpits and on his belly. Should I get them re­moved? He’s not keen! Bex, 40, In­ver­ness

Dear Bex

It sounds like your son has a vi­ral in­fec­tion called mol­lus­cum con­ta­gio­sum, com­mon in chil­dren. There are chem­i­cal treatments, but they can cause scar­ring. Some par­ents swear that cov­er­ing them in duct tape works, but it sounds like hard work. I’d just leave them alone. They’ll dis­ap­pear in a few months. Ask a doc­tor to check

them over, though.
