Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My son, who is 6 years old, has a bump on the palm of his hand. It is a hard bump, and he is on antibiotic Cefalexin 259 mg. Is this a wart? It does not pain on touching. He has had this for about a week and a half. His primary care doctor did not seem to know what it was so she prescribed an antibiotic. I have attached a photo of the bump.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the photo (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Yes, it seems like a viral wart You should go for electrocautery from some nearby hospital or from a dermatologist. I suggest giving him multivitamin syrup regularly for about a month to boost his immunity.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
