What if the cure is worse than the disease?

GRIN # 170

Tyler’s got a mammoth wart on the knuckle of his index finger. It’s so big he won’t let me take a picture of it.

Yeah, he’s onto me now; he knows where that picture will end up.

I tried the patches first. It seemed to clear the wart right up and then it came back with gusto, bigger than ever.

So I bought this stuff called “Freeze Away.”

Removes warts fast with as few as 1 treatment! Safe to use on kids ages 4 and older!

Awesome. AND it was on sale.

Jerry was dubious. “This isn’t going to work. Take him to see Nasir.” (Dr. Nasir is our dermatologist).

But I thought it was worth a shot, until I read this:

If you do not use Freeze Away exactly as these directions say to use it, or if you use it on any condition that is not a common wart, it may cause serious burns, permanent scarring of the skin or blindness.”

Blindness? Oy. Maybe we should leave well enough alone.

What to do?

I did what I always do. I passed the buck to Jerry. He did fine. Followed all the instructions.

Two weeks later the wart is still there. Mocking us.

We’re going to the doctor next week. I hate it when he’s right.

    This reminds me of the diet product that can cause gas, diarrhea, explosive eruptions, underwear stains, etc……I would rather be overweight.

    • I wonder how long you have to do the eggplant thing. Plus, I’m thinking the eggplant chunk would probably be hard to keep on the wart since it’s on his finger???
