Question: Filiform wart on 4 year old
|rayel4 - Tue May 24, 2005 4:04 pm||
My four year old has a wart underneath his eye. It has been growing for a few months now and shows no signs of getting smaller. In fact, I think it is growing in size! Should I take him to a doctor or will this eventually go away? He shows no signs of discomfort at all.

Up to 30% of warts disappear by themselves within 6 months. Most will disappear without any treatment within 3 years.
However, if its size is bothering you, you may see the doctor for treatment options.
