Facial Plane Warts

My Teenage Daughter has just been diagnosed with facial plane warts and they are covering a large portion of her cheek so very noticable. The Drs are going to try a few lotions but arent hoopeful that they'll cure it and say it could last for up to 10 years. She is obviously very upset and wants to hide them.

Is it ok to buy concealer, or will it aggrivate them?

Do any of you have any experience with these?

TIA

    Hi Tia,

    Concealer, when it comes to verrucae and warts, is not advised. This is as the concealer and the application of the concealer can spread the wart/verrucae virus which would result in even more warts/verrucas

    I've had a terrible time with warts and what eventually works for me was 25,000 IU Vitamin A capsules pricked and applied directly to the warts. It took a couple months too totally go away but after 12 years they got smaller and smaller and then we're just gone! There are study's on it and you can google it to check it out! Sending prayers your way, I know how horrible it is to struggle with sad

    Hi again Tia,

    I just wanted to caution you on aubreys' statement. Vitamin A can work for facial plane warts and can be very good. HOWEVER, high dose vitamin A is very dangerous if not monitored properly. In order to have the treatment Aubrey is describing, you MUST go to your GP or dermatologist and they will prescribe a safe and effective dose. Starting vitamin A treatment without proper advice is dangerous, with proper advice, there is no reason to worry.
