Apple cider vinegar is great for many things. Use a cotton ball and dab. The only thing is that it might sting. I'm not sure how bad your daughter has it.....

My son had them on his behind and since there is so much friction back there they were spreading like wildfire. Doc said to wait it out, but we used organic coconut oil, applied with a q-tip, every night before bed and before school. Started itching right away we just told him not to scratch, the bumps burst open over the first night and we just kept him clean and applied coconut oil 2x a day for two weeks and they're gone.

Then I would try either one of the ointments suggested or dab the apple cider vinegar on them.

she has 20 to 30 papules on her left cheek. It looks so bad. She feel bad when her friends ask her about it and by her innocent questions I am also feeling bad.

hey thanks Kathy foe replying me.I know she has a poor immune cz when weather changes she get flu n cold instantly. For her molluscum doctors told that go for a TCA application. Its mildly irritating. I don't want any marks on her face so i am little afraid. some people advice to apply Apple Cider Vinegar But they didn't told me how to apply it. by the I am really humbled for your concern.

Treatment



In people with normal immune systems, the disorder usually goes away on its own over a period of months to years.



Persons with a comprimised immune system (such as AIDS) may have a rapidly worse case of molluscum contagiosum.



Individual lesions may be removed surgically, by scraping, de-coring, freezing, or through needle electrosurgery. Surgical removal of individual lesions may result in scarring.



Medications, such as those used to remove warts, may be helpful in removal of lesions, but can cause blistering that leads to temporary skin discoloration. Cantharidin, commonly called "beetle juice," is the most common solution used to treat the lesions. Tretinoin cream or imiquimod cream may also be prescribed.
