My 3 year old has had this Molluscum contagiosum for coming up a year now and im starting to worry it started with one spot which has now turned into 5. There are loads of very small what look like pimples appearing on her arms and hope to god that they are not the same thing as there's a large amount appearing.
Being told to wait it out by the doctor and have another appointment in 4 month, being very concerned ive been reading the internet which is in turn making me more even worried reading stories of others.
So many positives and negatives of cures, as well as scams of people cashing in on others misfortune which sickens me when your trying to find information on cures. I have not tried anything of yet.
I need advice from people that have had it in there young ones and cleared it.
Things ive been concidering is, thuja, apple cider vinegar, leaving it alone or squeezing the big ones which have the white bits in.
I did read this from the UK NHS site it was comment on treatment by a user on the site which caught my eye.

"My 9 year old daughter has had a significant case of this for two months and it was spreading, GP advice was to squeeze which i did not agree with. Having read this and other online sources I have treated it in with a variety of alternative remedies and it has virtualy gone in two weeks of treatment leaving only slight red marks but no scarring where the lesions were.
I used a combination of direct topical application of TCP and 11% liquid salicylic acid (Scholl callous and corn removal treatment) onto the central core surface of the lesions avoiding surrounding skin. Allowed this to dry, then spray with colloidal silver solution across the entire affected areas ( neck, armpit and tummy), allowed to dry and then plastered with Sudocreme directly over the lesions. This done every evening after bathing. In parallel oral supplement of a betaglucan (am empty stomach) and concentrated olive leaf extract (pm with food). Positive results within one week, 99% clear after two weeks. Also using the collidal silver spray in all other areas to protect against reinfection."
Thanks for taking the time reading.
