If you child has had Molluscum Cantagiosum, you will know what a nightmare it is. Small, hard, red lumps appear on one area of the body, they grow and multiply, sometimes spreading to other areas, sometimes remaining localised. They can become sore and itchy. If they get caught on something or rubbed, they can come off and then they can bleed A LOT, and they can leave little scars. As the name would suggest, they are also very contagious.
My daughter had it when she was 3 or 4, and the spots (maybe 30 or so) lasted 14 months. This is normal as it can take 12-18 months for the body’s immune system to recognise the virus and react to it. To add to the annoyance and misery, my daughter had angry red topical eczema around the spots, which is a common reaction. Thankfully the eczema was controlled by a homeopath, and hasn’t appeared since.
My friend’s 9 year old daughter found 2 spots, picked them out, bled briefly from the ho
les that the rice-like heads came out of, and that was the end of it for her. But most cases that I have seen have lasted for over a year and some have covered vast areas of the body.
There is, however, good news! A cure has been created and trialed and is now available on prescription and over the counter!!! So if your child is affected by Molluscum Contagiosum you can treat it and get rid of it! http://www.molludab.co.uk/molluscum-contagiosum You dab it on twice a day for 6 days and the spots will go within a few weeks.
I’ve not tried it, but I certainly would have, had it been available when my daughter was affected, so I’d love to hear from anybody who has. Please get in touch.
