I am new here. My 2 year old grand daughter has this now for nearly 7 months now. All the doctors said let it run it’s course. Getting worse. She finally got prescription meds and cream and didn’t work. Tea tree oil helped some. I finally went to health food store Saturday and the guy there he never heard of this just like I hadn’t. He read up in it and said it’s a virus and viruses have to stop repeating. He suggested Lysine. He told me to give her a capsule opened up in some juice and wait 15 minutes before eating. Give her oatmeal bath as we have. It’s the 3rd day and OMG. They are about gone. She said tonight mama my bumps are better. My daughter in law is so so happy. I was concerned with a toddler taking this but her mom researched it and said it was safe. Check into this and see if it helps. We were at wits end trying to help her.

This time last year, I was desperately searching online for a way to get rid of my son's worsening molluscum without having them removed by a dermatologist. I'm not sure if anyone on this thread is still currently looking for help, but in case...
We found something that worked like a miracle, so I'm trying to get the word out to other moms who are struggling. We used 2 things on my son recommended by a nutritionist. One is a chewable vitamin taken twice per day called "Ultra Preventative Kids" made by Douglas Laboratories. The other is a liquid her called "Core Para-V Blend" made by energetix. You take the herb 3 times per day mixed in juice because it tastes horrible. I put it in a medicine cup with juice. To determine the amount of drops to use, you multiply your child's age by 3.
We had already tried several homeopathic remedies over a period of 6-8 months, including Emuaid Max, Zymaderm, and Frankencense essential oil, and they helped some, but the weren't going away, just getting smaller and less red. After 2 weeks of the above treatment, they were DISAPPEARING!!! It took 4-6 weeks of the treatment before they were totally gone. No pain, no scarring, no blisters, nothing. Just disappeared. I hope you get the same results if you try it.

three out of my four boys had this. My oldest son had it on his eye lids. After a lot of frustration I did the following. I am not a Doctor but this worked for all of my boys.

Get an extraction tool for black heads (zits)like this one http://www.skin1.com/twblrewila.html?utm...

Molluscum is contagious so wear gloves and sterilize their skin and the extraction tool. The Molluscum have a seed like object in the head of the wart. If you can use the extraction tool to remove the top layer of skin and the seed at the same time. There will be blood. Have a bandage ready and wipe the spot with alcohol and cover for a few days with a bandage. Move on to the next wart until you or your child has had enough. Continue until all the warts are gone. Once they are gone you will be happy and all my three boys handled he treatment well.

Now with the eyelid. I did not use the extraction tool on the eyelid. I waited patiently each afternoon and evening for my child to fall fast asleep. I used a sterilized needle to pick at the wart until I opened it and it bleed. Clean the area of blood and let the molluscum heal on it's own. It will scab over (it look kind of like a small tree trunk growing out of the skin) let it fall off on it's own. this might take a few weeks but you will be happy with the results.

My oldest son had a lot he is now clear of any molluscum
My middle son had one and I took it off right AWAY and he is also clear
his twin brother had five I removed and he is now clear.

Ask me any questions My oldest son had this for over a year and it was unsightly. I am happy to help anyone in this situation. Make sure you let the child rest a lot during the healing process as this is a virus they will need a strong immune system to fight it internally as a well.

My youngest has this, it stated on the arm then torso then chest. It's caused terrible eczema on her arm where they itch her and I guess why they spread.

My doctor said not to do anything and they will go, they havnt and I'm a year in with this unsightly wart thing going on.
So...... A teacher a school mentioned her bumps to me and said her daughter had had them and she squeezed the seed out and they went within a week!!!

I had to give it a go and as she's only 4 was very general and made sure she agreed to do them. They are nearly gone on the body completely after a few days. I'm over the moon.
They just scab up and drop off 😊

I too was told not to treat it as well but it kept on spreading. Not sure what kind of herbal plant my dad used but in a week its starting to clear up.

It does not pass! believe me it gets worse. The pediatrician told me to do nothing and guess what it spread like wild fire! go to a dermatologist they have special medicine and it makes it blister so the body sees an issue then the immune system fights it off. It is a med that is very easy to put on then you see the derm like two more times. Good luck!!

Molluscum Contagiosum (in the wart family) has run through my neighborhood and all three of my girls have it. My youngest had some medicine put on by the Dermatologist that caused blisters and then it was gone. My older daughters are undergoing a different treatment, as they have vitiligo (a skin autoimmune disorder that can be triggered by trauma to the skin). I am applying an herbal medicine that I purchased from our Derm. called Mollescum Rx - anyway, it says it has a 97% success rate and so far, so good - the spots seem to be shrinking. We have only been using it for around a week. The reason it is important to treat is that it can be passed from child to child. I wished I had acted more quickly and looked at my options - I may have prevented my other children from getting it. It can also spread to other parts of the body. Good luck!
