I feel I can really relate to you on this topic, I feel so bad about your daughter and that guy's grandson. Children are just so vulnerable to everything and I can only imagine how devestated you are that you can't seem to get any answers. My name is Amanda and I am 19 years old and was diognosed with Molluscum. Unlike the majority of the people my age I didn't contract this virus through sexual activity and permisquity. I was devasted when I found out that I had gotten this, because I pride myself of being a clean person - most of all i have no idea what to tell my fiance, how do you tell the man your about to marry that you have contracted an STI (sexually transmitted infection), but didn't get it by haveing sex. I've had this since september of 2004 and have done my homework on it. i have found that there are not many very good or easy treatments, although i did like the results of a treatment called cimetdine when i read about it. But that the thing there are treatments that physicians can do but they won't treat them, it's extremely frustrating for me because my doctor told me that there are treatment but she doesn't treat them, and i'm no acception. i am extremely outraged because the longer i have these lesions the greater the risk of me giving this to someone else, unintentionally of coarse, personally i don't wish this upon anyone. My doctor said it will go away, but it's getting worse and harder to control, i said to her, but that really didn't matter it seemed. i constantly live in fear of giving this to someone else. Why have treatments if no one will treat you. Are you having this problem in communication with your daughters physician.
