About 2 yrs ago I noticed my oldest son had some small bumps around his shoulder area. Didn't think much of it we live in South Alabama so bug bites are very common. I went on life as normal BATHING MY KIDS TOGETHER.... After a few more weeks I noticed that my oldests bumps had spread & a friend suggested that it might be MC. I had no idea what that was so I took him to the Dr & same story as the other people. However he did tell me that it was highly contagious. My heart sunk knowing that I had already exposed my two other kids to the virus. My sweet baby girl showed signs about a month after seeing the Dr. Hers however were between her legs up high. She has battled over a yr now. It has been painful for her and heartbreaking for me. I asked the dr everytime we visited if there was anything we could do to stop the progression. You see where hers are they multiply like crazy. I finally got sick of hearing "just let it run it's course". My baby was getting scarred in a delicate place & not to mention the pain.
I turned to the web & found out about ACV. Now it was not an easy task getting my 5yr to let me put the treatment in this very sensitive place. My oldest was game & was willing to do whatever it took. My youngest 3 has one on his behind & one on his arm but after watching my daughter's reactions was not too happy to let me try the treatment on him... We solidered on. After the first round the biggest of my daughter's bumps are gone my oldest son's have all gone & baby boy made it only 2 days so more is needed there. Baby girl is going to need more treatments as well. But I must say the information i've received here has been invaluable. I hope that a mom somewhere reads this & gets help for there baby's before 1 & 1/2 yrs passes with no help.
#1 don't allow legs to rub together at all!
#2 make sure the area drys completely before dressing
#3 don't poke or pop them!
#4 let them see the progress so they maybe more willing to go along with the treatments
#5 pray over those suckers!
