Cindi, warts are caused by viruses and if you have a vitamin deficiency you might be more susceptible to them. Your children will eventually become immune to them and they will go away (that’s why adults don’t get warts). In the meantime you can get some Duofilm® from your pharmacy and take care of the ones that are there now. Good luck.
