Kids are generally less excited removing warts than other activities. Needless to say, it’s worth looking into ways to help your children be comfortable before medical procedures. A new study released by Singapore’s National Skin Center has shown that exposing kids to television before freezing off warts helps them significantly.
“According to the findings, published in the Archives of Dermatology, all 15 children without video access were described as “highly anxious” before their treatment, based on their scores on an anxiety rating scale. In comparison, five out of the13 kids who watched videos were described as highly anxious.”
