Dear All,re: MolluscumBoth my children have the virus and it is aweful. Doctors do not pay a great deal of attention to this virus.It spreads rapidly and it looks terrble and it terrifies parents!I was fortunate to have my mother who knows a World renown Dernatologist from Essex England.Here is what you do:-Squeeze out the white spots. Make sure you clean them out one by one and DO NOT spread them around the area.Apply Betandine or and iodine solution with 10%povidone-iodinesee link:- newbielink:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betadine [nonactive]it is a good idea to take a plaster and cover every spot.This does two things, viz:-Helps heal the area andMore importantly stops your child spreading the virus by itching.Once the spot is removed and you have been applying the iodine use some Neosporin to help heal the area.Molluscum is contageous.Molluscum will go away in 6 months on average.Some doctors prescribe Aldara cream. This is effective and will create a redness and the spots will scab over. Perservere with the treatment and combine all of the above to reduce the time this virus goes away.I have spent days researching this and I hope that it helps anyome out there who is experiencing this trauma.You can email me at email@example.com if you need any further help.All the other lotions and miracle creams like silvercure are just a scam. The Zymaderm is just iodine based and may help.
