quote:Originally posted by rolansHi-Urine cures molluscum!! My 2 year old son had molluscum. I treated it with his own urine. It worked very fast, within a week it started to clear up.What happened was he somehow contracted this nasty little virus perhaps at his doctors? It started slow but over some weeks it got worse and he suffered. It would spread in its typical way up from his belly. It got to his neck and now I began to really panic. What if it got on his face? I did an extensive search for a cure and naturally I assumed there would be a simple over the counter remedy. Boy was I wrong, the more research I did the more I was shocked that no one had a real solution for molluscum and that so many people have and live with molluscum.What I found was the usual wait till it goes away crap or get some sort of vague complex treatment that would traumatize my kid. My wife called her father in Mongolia and he suggested the urine for a cure. After my son would pee in his pamper we would rub him with the pee wet pamper. What I do remember is that while he had molluscum it would never spread below his pampers and I had feared that it would spread to his penis and rectum. It never did due to the fact that urine was the barrier. In Asia urine is used for curing many blood related illness. Chingis Khan Used forms of this treatment to stay healthy. Please try it for all ages.Roland 
quote:Originally posted by mjboone79wow, its good to see other people dealing with the same thing. my girlfriend was diagnosed with molluscum a few weeks ago. we have been together for 7 months and i havent shown any signs so the first thing i thought was that she cheated on me (due to the area that it was on). to be honest ive still been struggling with that idea even though there have been no other signs. anyway, after some research i realized i had had it about 2 years ago. in my reading of web forums there seem to be alot of people whos partners are unaffected by this virus, therefore supporting the idea of immunity and general ease of tramsmission. however, this also supports the idea that the virus never truely goes away and can still be transmitted. on another forum i found a doctor who insists that it cannot be transmitted by towels and such and is only transmitted sexually when amongst adults. his theory is that it would be all over all of us if it were transmitted so easily. my theory on this is that children have much softer and more sensitive skin. adult skin is alot tougher, except for areas like the genitals which dont see much wear and tear and almost never get seen by the sun. any thoughts on that??
I've been diagnosed with Molluscum a couple of weeks ago. I've been doing a lot of research on the subject since I was going crazy looking at those bumps on my pubis. Yeah, I must have caught it during sexual intercourse...damn alchool. So I went to my doc 2 wweks ago; he burned the bumps with liquid azote. I read a lot about tea tree oil, and i've been using it on the lesions, and it seems to help the healing process of the burned ones. But i don't think it is doing anything to the new ones...I'm fraking out, and i have a couple of questions. I read a lot about cases were subjects were stuck with this **** for years...are those exceptionnal cases? Does anybody heard of other people geting rid of molluscum within months? I'm also getting paranoid. For instance, is washing hands with ordinary soap and water enough to prevent molluscum to grow elsewhere on your body, while you shower for instance? I always wash the infected area last, i never take baths, and I'm using tea tree oil on the lesions...is there something important i'm missing? From now on, the moment i see a bump on my body, i'm freaking out...does mollusucum spread that easily? In my case, the lesions appearded about 4-5 months after the intercourse...does that mean that in 5 months, molluscum can appear anywhere on my body I touched when i wasn't aware of the problem before I noticed the bumps?Damn...i'm going nuts about this. Thanks to all of you to share your experience with other people...helps me a lot. (I apologize for the crappy english...i'm french canadian  )Nick
Hi,Just wanted to post about my experience with genital molluscum. I've had it now for about 5 months, to everyone who currently has it don't let it get to you, you'll get rid of it with time & patience. I tried so many things to get rid of them as quickly as possible. The only thing I think worked was popping each of them, no matter how small they were. My dermatologist showed me how-to do it properly. I was trying to pop them like a pimple but the way to do it is take your thumbnails, get as far under one of the bumps as far as you can, close them together tightly and pull up still pinching your thumbnails together until the white core comes out. The only way you'll know if it's been popped correctly is if bleeding occurs. It's a little painfull and messy but a day or two later their completely gone.I've had the odd one or two come back but I popped them as soon as i saw them and they were gone too. Same as a pimple, you pop it, white stuff comes out, day or two later it's gone. Don't waste your money on those Aldara creams like I did. Get in the shower, practice on one of them and the rest is easy. Good Luck!
I got this disease (Molluscum) 2 months ago. I first noticed it when I found a strange bump on my superpubic area when I was about to shave again. Concerned; I cut the thing off (I don't think that one came back),
