can't get rid of mulloscum contagiosum

Postby mamato3 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:21 am

DS has this and it's spreading. I have tried over the counter topical oil for it (Zymaderm) but it's not helping. Coconut oil didn't help nor did Colloidal Silver. He is also taking monolaurin (for the anti-viral affects) Can anyone suggest anything else? He won't tolerate having the bumps removed-it's too invasive, but what else is there?

I also wonder if this virus can be causing any other symptoms. His Dr. says no, but then I have a really hard time trusting doctors...

never heard of it till now, had to google what it is
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molluscum_contagiosum
http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv ... iosum?open

have you tried iodine drops onto the spots perhaps
( be careful cause iodine really stains )
another possible is raw manuka honey, we use a product called "medihoney"
another is paw paw cream perhaps

I wouldn't throw too much money at it as it is apparently temporary
sorry cant be more help

This is not uncommon in kids -- but if he scratches the bumps, he can cause it to spread.

From what I understand, this goes away on its own, but takes some time to do so (like a year or more).

All of my children have had this at one time or another, I have no idea why---I've never had a wart in my life. One of my sons was getting quite a few though, like you are describing, it seemed as if it was spreading. Like Winnie explained, if you pick at them (which what child doesn't ?!) then they tend to spread. Anyway, I ordered some homeopathic drops that iodine was the main ingredient that were supposedly great for these types of warts. My poor son, 3 at the time, had this horrific reaction to iodine, as in emergency room reaction! He broke out into the nastiest rash you've ever seen from head to toe!

So, the moral to this story is that if/when you try something new, just use a tiny bit on a small area of skin and wait a few days to watch for a reaction.

Honestly, the best thing is to just wait it out, but it can take a really long time, up to a year. Also, they can leave scars, like little divets in the skin.

Good Luck!

My son had molluscum at 10 months old. Nothing stopped it for us until we had them burnt off at 17 months old. It was a iodine based solution from a dermatologist he applied and we washed it off in an hour. After that we didn't give baths just washed and rinse. used clean new towels and clothe to wash him to prevent spreading. We have not seen them since. Thank god. It did bliste and we applied a topical treatment to prevent infection.

Now that he is being pumped with tons of vitamins and immune support I am confident that those suckers wont return but if they do I will approach the same way. We used oatmal baths, zymaderm and colloidal silver but nothing worked quite like burning them off. They were on his chest and down his side. I see very little scaring but some small marks because he is quite fair skinned.

Good luck.

Because coconut oil treatment is just a natural remedy that not every body always succeed in eliminating mulloscum contagiosum. I had this illness three months ago. And I also had tried coconut oil but it didn't work. I used garlic and continued to received the same result. Finally, sea salt helped me to get rid of that skin infection. Sea salt is well-known for ability against bacteria and virus.
I used a mix of sea salt, honey and olive oil. The amount of those ingredients are equal to each others and depends on your condition. Massage your skin with that mix in about 3 minutes then wash it by fresh water. Let your skin dry naturally. Apply this method 3 or 4 times per week.
You may have many other choices to treat mulloscum contagiosum from this site: https://authorityremedies.com/home-remedies-for-molluscum-contagiosum/
You can also fight this illness by physical removal, oral therapy, topical therapy or therapy for immunocompromised persons which are recommended by Center for Disease Control and Prevention. http://www.cdc.gov/poxvirus/molluscum-contagiosum/treatment.html
Hope my information be useful for you! :D

Hey! I hope I am not too late. After many failed trips to my dermatologist AND doctor to treat my molluscum contagiosum, I decided to try out some over-the-counter products.

After reviewing this site: I found that ZymaDerm worked the best for me. You might want to make sure it is okay with your doctor that you use it first, however.

My son had several all over his body (including very large ones on his lip and legs) and for two years nothing helped. In late October I started him on 1-3 drops of Lugols iodine taken internally to help wipe out a recurrent strep infection that we were passing around our family. By late December even the largest ones were completely gone. And have remained gone. I suppose it could be a coincidence but it seems to me unlikely that it would be. Also not a single case of strep since. :)
