Q.

Pearl Warts on legs

Hi

My niece has pearl warts on her legs. What is the cause and how can it be treated?

Paediatrician

This sounds like a common viral infection of the skin called molluscum.Unfortunately there is no easy cure and in all cases the skin problem will clear up by itself, but takes a long time, usually about 1 year.Molluscum is very catchy especially to other young children.
