文献摘要

Viral warts is a very common pediatric complaint, occurring in 5–10% of children.1 Although, many warts in children may resolve spontaneously without treatment, patients frequently request treatment to alleviate the patients’ physical and psychological discomfort and to prevent the spread of the infection. A variety of therapies have been studied for treatment of warts, but none of hese is uniformly effective in the elimination of the lesions. These include cryotherapy, carbon dioxide laser, podophyllin resin, salicylic acid, cimetidine, phenol, tape occlusion, excision, and no treatment.2 Cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen is one of the most effective and established treatments, but the optimum method for delivery of liquid nitrogen is uncertain. The most widely used method is either a cryo-spray or a cotton-tipped applicator. By usingmelamine foam (Magic Eraser sponge) instead of cotton wool, we could treat various types of wart more readily and quickly.
