Warts. Do I need to treat them?

No. 

There was a study of 1100 children. 1 of 3 of them had at least one wart.  One year later (without any treatment) 1/2 of all the warts were gone.  This was especially true in younger and nonwhite children.

So, if you can wait it out… all your children’s warts may resolve spontaneously and without treatment.
