    Wart Removal for Young Child

    My daughter is 7 yrs. old and has a wart on the top of each foot. She is very self-conscious about these. I decided this weekend to put come salicylic acid generic-type Compound W on them.
    My ex-wife is livid because, A.) I didn't discuss with her first, B.) she said our pediatrician recommended leaving them be, and that they would simply go away in time, and the medicine could cause scarring, and C.) I didn't discuss with her first.
    I was present at her most recent visit to the pediatrician, as I always am, and remember Nothing about the doctor's recommendation regarding the warts. Furthermore I've seen nothing about potential harmful effects or age limits other than being allergic to the salicylic acid itself. Any advice and/or clarification would be appreciated.
