Younger patients are sometimes reluctant to have you use a liquid nitrogen spray gun to freeze their warts, because it can be painful. Try applying the liquid nitrogen with a wool bud instead. This method produces less discomfort because less nitrogen is applied than with the spray gun. However, enough is still delivered to freeze the deeper tissues.   ■
