My little girl has Mollascum Contagious which is mostly spread through bath water. Her private parts are covered. I have tried natural treatments (Wheatgrass spray & Thujar ointment) but had to start using a quarterzone as it has flared right up and is now spreading to her back and stomach. Has anyone dealt with Mollascum Contagiosum before, if so how do I get rid of it.

My three daughters had Mollascum. They were 18 months, 5 and 9. Thank goodness none of them had it on their faces. It does scar. They have little puck marks from it on their knees and under their arms. The youngest scared the least. The two younger ones did not have to be treated and it went away on its own but my older one had to be treated by the dermatologist. He applied three separate treatments of some kind of bettle juice to her knee and it worked. It was a horrible thing for all of us to go through. I was glad when it all went away and has never returned.

I took my daughter to the dermatologist and he prescribed Retin A (schedule 3 ointment). I applied it once already and have to wait and see.

i don't know if you guys are into natural remedies, and i fully disclose this sounds ridiculous, but my mother cured my niece. She did a lot of research and discovered that several substances have antimicrobial properties... So she combined real rose absolute oil with colloidal silver in castor oil. It was not cheap (the silver and rose oil were expensive) but within 2 weeks a difference was noticeable, and within 6 weeks the spots all over her privates and waistband areas were GONE!

Both of my boys had this several years ago, we tried everything, came across something called the silver cure (you can google). It took a lot using the special soap and covering the spots with the cream and spraying the stuff on their bedding but they did start going away within 2 weeks. They were just miserable with the Mollascum it was all up and down their legs to the point they would not even wear shorts in 90 degree wether.

My son had a small dose of Mollascum Contagiosum on his face (3-4 spots over a year) Thankfully they never spread much but my poor nephew (which is where i think my son got them) had them all over his face for 18 months which really affected how people treated him. They eventually clear up but since the only REAL cure is to have them burnt off (frozen) your probably going to have to endure the natural process.

Some things i learnt were

don't let your daughter bath (or swim) with other kids - except at the beach

keep her nails as short as possible

if she gets some on her face - get them burnt off

don't pick or squeeze them - it's the center which is contagious and you will spread them

I know it's a hard thing to see your daughter go through but they will eventually go...aaw i feel so sorry for her

she needs a cortizone shot before it completely spreads or becomes very unconfortable

I was prescribed a cortizone because they had become irritable and she would not stop scratching them. This has since settled them down alot. Thank you for the article but I don't think I could put my daughter through having them frozen off. I have tried other natural remedies like Thujar (herbal wart ointment) but it did nothing. I have also tried using the Wheatgrass spray, again this did nothing.

I have seen several doctors and all told me the same thing MOLLASCUM CONTAGIOSUM.. the reason I was prescribed the cortizone is because they became inflamed from scratching.

I'd say go see a doctor just incase it's not what you think it is. They would beable to tell you what to use, Even see a pediatrition.
