Case: A 2-year-old boy has had a cluster of asymptomatic, pink to tan, verrucous papules on his right dorsal foot since 6 months of age. The lesion has slowly enlarged. The child has no other lesions and no known medical conditions. The parents have tried using duct tape for empirical treatment of a wart, without a response.
What can you tell the parents that will spare this child more duct tape applications?
