Molluscum ContagiosumHi, I have 2 children, a daughter, age 9, and my son is 6 years old. They both contracted Molluscum in the swimming pool at their daycare last summer. It started initially as just one bump, and has progressively gotten worse. I have taken them both to the dermatologist and they were prescribed Imiquimod (aldara). After 6 months of use, i am finding this unaffective, nothing has changed, their skin is severly irritated fron it.
They really have a horrible case and it is primarily located under their arms and laterally on their chests. Jacob has had a few show up on his legs as well. I have been trying to keep sheets washed, and everything clean, but it seems they keep reinfecting themselves. With it being under their arms, the friction, causes them to itch and be irritated. I have explained and explained this to them, that scratching them is spreading them.... Anyways...
it is looking really bad and the skin around is really dry and looks like eczema as well. I went to the store that sells the homoeopathic things today and bought just about everything that had to do with skin and warts!
I have Thuja 30c, Colloidal Silver, and Essential Tea Tree Oil...
Now, I need help in figuring out what I need to use, (if any of this) and how much to give them safely. Their weights are 55 and 60 pounds. Or if there are other remedies I should try...
I tried Apple Cider Vinegar last night on them and both of my kids about shot through the roof it burned so bad.. so that is out the window!
Appreciate any help or advice!! Thanks, JS
