The Doctors: What Are Water Warts?
Robert sent in an email to The Doctors with the following question, “Hi Dr. Sears, my son developed little white bumps all over his chest after having strep throat. The doctor diagnosed him with water warts. How did he get them and how can I prevent them from spreading to my other kids?”
Dr. Jim Sears said they have nothing to do with strep. The medical name for water warts is actually molluscum contagiosum and they are actually pretty harmless. He said they are filled with this cheesy white fluid that can be easily extracted.
In children, Dr. Sears said water warts are spread by direct contact. If the warts are exposed, make sure they are covered up. They are a pain though. The best treatment for them is to do nothing and leave them alone for around a year. If they are really bothersome you might be able to freeze them off at home with liquid nitrogen or you may need to see a doctor.
