My son has caught from another child Molluscum Contagiosum.

What is the best treatment?

So far the wart treatment did nothing.

I am currently treating it with Benzoile Poroxide 10%

FOUND THE TREATMENT! My daughter is 2 and has had it since she was 6 months old. I have taken her to several dermatologists and they all said it disappears on its own! but I couldn't wait and see it spreading from her back to genitals to her face!!! our pediatrician had mention applying "Thuja oil" before and I had started it but I was never consistent with it! I guess I wanted to see result in couple of days! I started using it again about a month ago since I had given up on every dermatologist !!! AND IT WORKS! 5 of the bumps disappeared after applying for 2 weeks only and the rest are just going away so fast!!!! THUJA OIL WORKS! you can buy it from amazon, I even went ahead and ordered the cream after I saw results, the cream is easier to apply and it doesn't run down like the oil!I am applying both now couple of times a day and I am soooo relieved! It is a very effective and natural treatment and I really really suggest you try it. just search for Thuja essential oil and try it. you will see the result as long as you are consistent with it. apply it every day, couple of times a day. I tried it on her genital area but she felt an itching or burning sensation so I stopped applying it there, I think the skin is more irritated there due to mild diaper rash and so on . but i'm putting it on the rest of her body and she doesn't even feel it.even after a week or so when some of the bigger spots kind of open up and get a dry skin on top before they completely go away, I thought it might bother her in that stage but didn't at all!!! she actually asks me to put her medicine on! the oil in green color but doesn't stain clothing, comes off easy when you do laundry and doesn't need stain removing treatment! remember the key: BE CONSISTENT and don't give up. you will see results!

I am pretty sure my son has this and I am scared to death! I have never heard of it and hope to god his health is ok. I am so scared for him he only has 2 bumps that I can see. One on his neck and one on his chin. They have been there for 5 months. I asked my family dr about them and she said oh some virus he probably picked up from preschool. And referred us to a derm. I just need someone to let me know that this is normal. Just some reinsurance that he will be ok. Jake has an appt with the derm on Jan 18th wish me luck. I hope my younger son does not get it!

Seems like most kids get them, my three all had them, no treatment required, no fuss, takes a while for them to go, I figure, its common and not really a problem. No scarring at all. let nature as nature intends, maybe there is a reason for them.

My daughter had this about 2 years ago, and our dermatologist used something that was just as effective as wart treatment, but I can't remember what it was. It was much less painful and scary for her than the couple that she did get the wart treatment for. You might ask them for an alternative to the wart treatment to see if they have one. Whatever they used on my daughter was a chemical that seemd to sort of burn them off, as bad as that sounds... but it was better than freezing them. She has no scars on her arms where she had it, and very slight scarring on her torso. You have to know it's there to see it.

My doc told me to just pop them and they go away...but it hurts my daughter so I just let them be and little by little they disappear on their own.

Thanks Cara. T did visit a dermatologist to get the original wart treatment. Was reluctant to get them frozen as she stated that it could cause scarring..They are getting better with the Benzoil poroxide surprisingly it is working.

I had molluscum contagiosum as a little kid. I remember going to the dermatologist, and he eventually froze a number of the spots off with liquid nitrogen. I suggest seeing a dermatologist to prevent your son's skin from scarring. That was many years ago now though, maybe the treatment has changed!

When my son had molluscom contagiosum we use this product ZymaDerm. But we haven't tried that is a long time.

It goes on its own, no treatment necessary, just make sure your son has his own towel etc,

It can take up to 2 years to go, my son had it and luckily it only lasted a few months

Hope I've helped a bit??
