Q.

warts

Hi doc, my son is 8 and has big warts on his bigtoe, under the toenail, it spreaded to the second toe and 3 fingers. He is being treated by a good dermatologist. They burned it twice, we tried acid also and had 4 sessions of lazer treatment. Al with no success! The dr does not know what else to try, do you have any advice please? Can this turn into cancer?

These warts are caused by a virus. They will not turn into cancer.Ask your dermatologist about a medicine called Aldara to treat your son's warts.
