This MC is driving me nuts. Background story, I first felt it about 6 months ago. I shave my "bottom" once every 2-3 weeks. One day I felt a little "fleshy bump" and I thought it was just a skin tag because I have this kind of small fleshy skin tag on my neck. I thought they were just the same kind of "skin tag".
Fast forward to October something. I shaved it again and I may have shaved that fleshy pump (my taint area, under bewteen my testicles and anus) and I was sitting on a heat warmer when I use computer. This heat warmer emits "steam" after microwave. I was using this because I am also a long term sufferer of "anal fissure". I was trying to use heating pad to bring blood to the anus area so it can help it heal the wound.
Well, what do we have here? Shaved MC + Heat + Moist = SPREAD
One day I felt 4 pumps. I was horrified. I thought I got a HPV. I got two shots of Gardilis before so I started googling and decided to visit Patient First. I had a feeling it is not a sexual wart because the pump doesn't feel "hard". It feels like flesh. As soon as the doctor saw it, she said it's Mollscum. I was like "what?". I don't even know how to pounce it. I asked her 3 times and she got annoyed and said "It is not a sexual wart! It is very common and just wait it out". At this point I have one larger pump (the mother pimple) with one medium size and two very little ones = 4 noticeable pimples.
Needlessly to say I went online and read whole bunch of remedies. I first tried Conzero1. I gave it a try for two weeks. No improvement except it stains the hell of my underwear. Then I tried Tea Tree Oil and Clove Oil, no improvement. This lingers on for about a month.
One day I shaved my bottom again. I thought I could bypass that area but evidently the virus is in the skin even without noticing it (and it is very hard to see in the taint area! ). Oh hell. After a few days, it caused a few little rash-like bumps. These little rash-like, hard dumps are close to my anus.
Then I decided to try Apple Cider Vinegar. I didn't want to try this first because I was afraid of the scarring but at this point I can care less. I need the pimples to go away! To start, is is VERY tough to bandage under my balls. I can't see it and that area isn't exactly "flat surface". After a few days, the area became irritated. I couldn't see so I can't tell if there is noticeable "white head". All I can tell is the whole area became irritated. I only do it once before bed.
Since I start using ACV, the area spread out little with rash-like, hard-bumps. I don't see obvious "mushroom flesh head".
I am not sure if I made the condition worse or not. I know many people said for ACV or any acid-based stuff to work, the area would become worse and then become better later. I am skeptical. Yes, the mother pimple has shrunk in size but the area has more rash-raised-bumps. It seems the more I mess with the bumps, the more it spreads out. :(
I've been reading this thread and right now the only confirmed thing is our immune system can kill it eventually. I can't wait 4 years. Hell, even 4 months is unacceptable at this point.
Here is what I am going to do now:
1. Stop using ACV, Tea Tree Oil and Clove Oil
2. Dry the area with hydrogen peroxide
3. Dry the area more with baby powder
4. Taking multi-vitamin
5. Taking 200mg Tagament twice a day (some studies confirmed that it works)
Sorry for such long post. What I want to know is has anyone progressed to this Rash-like, Raised and a bit more hard, pimple-like MC?
I think ACV only works on certain type of MC. It almost sounds too magically that you put ACV soaked cotton and then the fleshy just falls off. Mine seems to spread out after I put ACV. :(
No shaving, no shaving, no shaving. sigh. This is the #1 reason why mine spread out the way it did. I don't even know how some people can just physically "pop it". That seems like a very risky way to spread?
