[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] My 4 year old started with one little bump about 8 months ago. The DR failed to diagnose it. Before I knew it, 1 was 5, 5 were 10, 10 were 20, 20 were 40..... I think your getting the picture. She had horrible clusters of 10-40 behind her knees, armpit, tummy/trunk, chest... ect. It was taking over our lives and spread to her 6 year old sister. When the dr finally diagnosed and gave us a prescription ( of what I dont even remember, it was totally useless! ).
I then started researching home remedies and came accross this site and thought I would share some tips. Like I said, the bumps were just everywhere and taking over my 4 year old. For 3 days I dipped makeup remover pads in the ACV and covered with bandaids... From the regular sized ones on individual bumps, to the super large bandages on her clusters. After the 2-3 days most had responded, but not all.
But now, we had a new problem. She had sooooo many bumps and areas that needed treatment, I was going thru an entire plus box of bandaids each treatment/day. The next mornings, when time to remove bandages, it was torture on her!! I dont know if she just has very sensitive skin ( not something I'd noticed before in her) or because of the number of bandages we required or if I had gorilla glue adhesive bandages lol! I knew we had to continue treatment, but now she had scabs/rips in good skin from removing bandaids. She was in horrible pain and screaming whenever she knew it was time to switch or remove them. I felt awful, but was determined to see this thru till we killed this HATEFUL virus.
My best suggestion on large clusters in areas like behind the knees or in armpit, ect.... is to get the whole makeup pad remover soaked with ACV, then cover/wrap with "secure flex wrap" stuff. Its the roll of crinkle-y looking stuff that sticks to itself. Looks like a big tape roll. You tear it into any length you need and while it sticks to itself, it won't on skin. Now hopefully, we can finish these bumps off for once and all! Good luck. I truly understand your pain, suffering and frustration. Hang in there!
