[YEA]  My son has molluscum and we used ACV and it helped but I also made him take a probiotic vitamin for a healthy immune system. You can buy these for children and adults in chemists, because one of the reasons for getting molluscum is having a low immune system. We also made him shower the area twice a day. And changed his clothes everyday. It is working great and he only has two now.

My 9 month old was just diagnosed with MC. Although it sounds like there have been some good results, I am hesitant. A 9 month old will not understand that the pain caused by ACV, is a good pain. Can anyone help me with this dilemma? What should I do?

Check out coconut oils and aloe vera gel or even the juice, just moisten skin with plain aloe juice and apply the oil over it! You can also use chamomile tea as an after bath tonic! Even a sea salt soak might work!

I can tell you that I don't think the apple cidar vinegar is painful as much as it is just unpleasant smelling. As long as you don't puncture the molluscum they will not be painful with the apple cider on top. I treated my 10 year old daughter with it and the only issue was the smell. The molluscum she had was right on her shoulders. I put a makeup pad soaked in it and taped them over the molluscum then left it on while she slept for seven nights. She whined about the smell but I never heard a complaint about it being painful. 9 month olds are usually not to worried about smells yet so I don't think it will hurt them as long as the molluscum are not open sores.

I tried the apple cider vinegar on my other child's planters wart that was getting so huge that it was affecting her ability to walk as it was on the instep of her foot. It only took a couple treatments and now it's just a small red scar. ACV is amazing.

Does anyone have experience with MC on their face or tongue? All discussion here has been about the skin, but what happens when it goes beyond that? I was MC free for a year, went into a friends hot tub, and red spots appeared. Thought nothing of it, til I spotted red spots on my tongue, which soon spread to the back of my throat (I take it they transferred from my body to my girls, where I picked it up orally). Any suggestions on this? I've soaked a cotton ball in ACV and left it on my tongue as long as possible, I gargle with 1/2 ACV/1/2 water, but still they remain. This virus sucks- I'm just hoping it can't pass beyond my tongue/throat and cause internal problems.

A mother wrote an interesting blog entry using aromatherapy to cure her toddler's molluscum contagiosum. It's very informative and she posts photos of her little boy and his progress. It did take several months but the spots haven't come back. It's posted on a site that sells essential oils but you can buy essential oils just about anywhere these days. It's the information that is useful. For what it's worth:

Lemon myrtle is usually applied to adult skin but the mother found it too harsh on her son so she used Ravensara in Calophyllum.

Hope this helps someone.

Baby Powder

Posted by Shanna (Georgia) on 09/15/2015

[YEA]  Baby Powder is amazing for Molluscum Contagiosum. I have treated the bumps with tea tree oil and after it dried, covered the entire area with baby powder. It dries up the bumps and prevents others from spreading. Do not pop them!! The white part is the virus and will spread if popped. For white heads I have treated with peroxide and then covered with a band aid. Then spread baby powder all over affected parts. I hope it works for your family like it has for ours!

Barley and Salt

Posted by Asila (Amman, Jordan) on 03/17/2015

[YEA]  Thank you to all those who posted here. Your ideas helped my 9 year old son under-arm, spreading infection. Now it is almost gone.

I recall my late father doing this folk medicine trick with barley and squash. The reasoning in brackets is my own:

1- Place two table spoons of barley over low heat in a frying pan for 5 minutes (to disinfect).

2-Prick each bump with one grain. Choose grains that have sharp needles. (barley grains serve as single-use needle).

3- Stick the grain into a squash or cucumber.

4- Bury the squash (medical waste management).

This is done ceremonially to invoke the psychological factor.

I am lucky that the Dead Sea is an hour drive away. So here is what I did:

1- I pricked the bumps and had my son dip in the ultra salty water for a few minutes, then I checked the pumps.

I pricked and repeated until all pumps turned red.

2- At home, I applied Betadine, pricked and applied apple vinegar compresses daily.

3- I repeated the Dead Sea trip a week later.

Finally the infection was under control, from hundreds of bumps of all sizes to a handful.

The followup treatment is this:

1- disinfect the area with Betadine.

2- prick and squeeze yellow bumps to make sure bumps don't accidentally pop and spread the infection. Prick new bumps so they are no longer protected by thick skin. With each prick and squeeze, reapply Betadine.

2- Apply a saturated solution of salt or sodium Bicarbonate with a cotton bud. Apple vinegar also works but please make sure the acidity does not harm the skin.

3- Apply some salicylic acid wart topical treatment. I prefer coal tar ointment because it doesn't scar or hurt, but it stains a lot.

4- Change to fresh clothes often, add an antiseptic to the wash and hang clothes in the sun. Shower often with disinfecting wash. Do not scrub.

5- make sure the infection does not return. For a couple of months after it is gone, wipe daily with betadine.

Balanced food, supplements like vitamins, Echinacea extract and royal Jelly help.

Some recommend banana peel compresses or milky drops from fresh leaves of the fig tree. I haven't tried those myself.

Be consistently aggressive or this battle is lost. Good Luck.

Betadine Iodine

[YEA]  My son had Molluscum Contagiosum almost 26 years ago. It seemed to appear almost overnight only on his neck. He had over 100 bumps. After a trip to the dermatologist he told us to apply Betadine with a cotton swab daily. The individual bumps became irritated and after he played in the tub (while the lesions were still soft) I would pull out the little core. We worked on it every night and they were gone in no time! Once that core is gone the bump goes away.

A miracle!

Candida Antigen Immunotherapy

Posted by Abby (Denver, CO) on 12/02/2014

Given the amount of research I did online trying to find a solution for our daugher's molluscum, I had to share the medical cure we finally found. Her case was extreme - the worst the pediatric dermatologist had ever seen with hundreds of bump everywhere but her face. We tried everything: vinegar baths, bleach baths, zymaderm, essential oils (clove, lemon myrtle, tea tree, etc. etc.), duck tape, potassium hydrochloride, tagamet, salicylic acid, and on and on. Nothing worked.

The dermatologist recommended immunotherapy since she had too many to freeze or scrape them off. She injected 3-4 of the bumps with the yeast candida in a specific region at a series of 3 appointments 3 weeks apart. First we injected 3 bumps on her back. The next appointment was 4 on her torso and bottom. And finally 4 on her arms and legs. The results were amazing, but mainly kicked in after the second appointment. They just started to disappear, no matter the developmental stage they were in. The ones she had scratched took longer to heal, but also went away. We are now focused on helping her skin be as healthy as possible so the scars can fade.

I hope this helps others fighting this horrible virus. Please ask for a derm referral and that they do the candida antigen injections. It does an amazing job of stimulating the child's immune system to fight it off. Good luck!

Clearasil Pads

Posted by Mom T (Cincinnati, Ohio) on 04/12/2012

[YEA]  Two of my boys had Molluscum Contagiosum, and we have found our own way to get rid of them. It takes consistency, but it works. Every night and Every morning they would rub each bump with a Clearasil pad (the ones with 2% saucilic acid in them). This dries the bumps out and they disappear within a couple weeks. Now, both of my boys also have severe Eczema. So obviously using a drying agent on their skin caused their Eczema to flair (esp. Since it was in their elbow arm pits- a bad eczema spot anyway). We combated their eczema at the same time with their prescription Elocon lotion (being sure not to touch the bumps with the eczema lotation, b/c that would just counteract the molluscum treatment you just did) The bumps will be a little painful and bright red as they are drying out, but I promise they will go away one by one, quickly! Try it and see if it works for you- I hope!!! Molluscum is awful and ugly!

Clove Oil

[YEA]  Clove oil seems to be working for my 7 year old son! It's been only 5 days some have gone away quicker than others! They seem to be coming to a head and easily pulled off! Does burn a bit but not as bad as having them burned off!

Posted by Godblessedme (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) on 08/31/2012

[YEA]  CLOVE OIL! CLOVE OIL! CLOVE OIL! I caught molluscum from a sauna at the gym, I had a hard time getting rid of most of them. I tried ACV and that just irritated my skin and made things worse. I ordered the strongest Tea Tree oil on the market from Melaleuca, that worked a little better but it took quite a while. After 8 months I thought they had all gone away but apparently I had one little spot that stuck around for another 4-5 months, I didnt realize what it was and scratched it. Well needless to say, it spread to about 7 bumps. I was devistated, then I found this thread and someone had mentioned clove oil. I got 100% pure clove oil, applied it to the spots and within hours the spots were smaller and almost gone. I applied the oil 4 times and over night, they had all disapeared! I was amazed and so relieved! Try clove oil! Just be careful because it seriously burns if you get in the wrong areas by accident. I have a hypothyroidism which causes my immune system to be weaker than normal, so I thought I would never be cured of this. With much praying and much effort of not irritating the spots, and dialy upkeep of oils and cleansing I am happily free of the ailment!!! Good luck to everyone, I hope my advice helped someone. Prayers and Clove oil!

Posted by Clove Oil Worked Best (Orlando, Fl) on 07/22/2012

[YEA]  Clove oil worked in a couple days for Molluscam Contagiosum and doesn't hurt or damage the skin. Did the ACV and it worked okay, but just hurt my 2 yr old too much. Tried zymaderm, didn't work. Tried clove oil applied directly too spots (my bottle was over 8 yrs old so I applied direct, but probably dilute with carrior oil if new(some say their oil is strong enough undiluted to blister. So be careful, don't get it too strong). It should only be a mild tingle if anything when applied. First the spot gets a little raised and inflamed around it. Then the horrible little spots get a dark spot in the center within a couple days of 2 applications per day and fall out. Killed them dead. Finally something that works, if I had only known at the beginning, he would have only had 15 spots to treat not 50. Clove oil, who knew.

Hello everyone. for the last few years, I, too, have suffered from mc, - on my face! So, I am very leary of treating with the acidic apple cider vinegar (acv) and had more questions about the clove oil treatment.

#cowb in orlando, fl, if you're out there, you wrote that you applied the clove oil directly. My questions: how often did you aply the oil and how did you apply it? did you put it on cotton or some other carrier and bandaid it as with the acv? thx ahead of time. I want these little guys gone...

Replied by Clove Oil Works

I applied the clove oil at 100%. That said it is NOT recommended. You should dilute it per recommendation at 20/80 clove oil to coconut oil or a carrier oil. The face is tender skin. If you put it on undiluted or even 50/50. It will sting for about 10 minutes. Not bad just wow warm. Don't use if you have medical conditions... Etc. depending on the size of the MC, small ones will only need a couple days if clove oil applied with a q-tip, and then they will get a tiny scab in the center and they are dead. Mature ones might take a week or two. But NOTHING out there works as quickly or painlessly without damaging the skin like clove oil. PS. It also cured a coworkers jungle rot. You don't need to cover it with band aids. Just dab the spot with the clove oil mix. Let it soak in and forget about it. I put this out on the web in June 2012 and I have found many people who have replied that it worked for them. Please let us know your results.

[YEA]   This has really worked for me so far.

I woke up with spots all over my side and collar area a few days ago and went straight to see the doctor. She told me it was MC, that it will go away on its own and to not share towels with others.

I immediately came home and started dabbing them with ACV before even looking it up. After some more research, I tried clove oil. It's been less than 2 days, and the spots are already dried up and look like they may be on their way out. They are very small, so they don't really have a head, although it looks like they have a tiny tiny black head, which is towards the end I think.

I don't know if I have a mild case, which explains why they are small, but either way I recommend treating spots ASAP after diagnosis or, prefereably, discovery.

I would not recommend picking or scraping.

Clove oil all the way!

Colloidal Silver

Posted by Relieved Mom (San Francisco, Ca) on 09/23/2012

[YEA]  My 8 year old son got MC about last winter and it spread like mad over the summer. First we tried apple cider vinegar - it worked a little but burned and itched. He also had so many lesions that I was concerned about spreading them every time I used a cotton ball to dab the ACV on. Tried clove oil (no change at all), tea tree oil (dried his skin out and itched), and boosted his immunity with vitamins and probiotics. Nothing worked until we tried Colloidal Silver. Within 2 days of ingesting 1 tsp/day and spraying his body topically, almost half of the lesions in his armpit (which was covered) were gone. He was also pain free from the itching and burning. We are 4 days in and every day the improvement is tremendous. I bought it over the counter at Whole Foods and can't believe the change. He is thrilled and I am so relieved that something finally worked!

[YEA]  My 4th year daughter diagnosed with molluscum contagiosum , it started with about 25 spots , we take her to the dermatologist , and he adviced us to make a cryotherapy to remove it - it was abad experince for my daughter because it was painful - we did it because it was a fast solution to prevent spreading the virus to other areas on her body , after 2 weeks I noticed a small spots with a numerous numbers all over her hands and legs , we were shoked from that , so we took her again to her dermatologist , he adviced us to paint Benzac 5% all over her legs and arms , of course I did not listen to him , because Benzac 5% it an irritating medicine it will casue a pain and my daughter and she may scratch it - Because of benzac - and this will lead to spread the virus to other areas on her body or to us ...

Since I live in Jordan where dead sea locate in , I know Many people come from all over world to the dead sea to enjoy there and to treat many skin diseases such as psoriasis , even when I was in Jordan - now im living in other country - I used to go with my family and friends to swim in the dead see , and paint our bodies with this mud , By the way this mud is very rich of minerals especially sulfur and it has astrange texture because it lays under the most salted sea in the deepest point in the world , where you cant find and creature live in because of heigh concentration of the salt and minerlas - except some kind of Bacteria where discovered recently - , by the way and many cosmatic companies used this mud in their product ....

so I decided to use Dead Sea mud , and I started to paint my Daughter arms and leg with her cheek ( because it start to appear on that area ) with that mud , when me and my wife finished from painting our daughter , she was look like a Mumy :) .... we left the mud for 15 minutes on her body till it become dried , then we wash her by water and we used Dettol shower gel , after shwer we noticed that the spots become large , inflamed and red , we were woried , I asked my daughter honey do you feel any pain or itching , she said no. after a few hours the spots come back to its normal size and shape , we repeated the treatment for 5 consecutive days , all the spot become dried and their size become smaller , so we decided to stop painting , now most of the spot gone and the remaing is very small , really I was happy for that result , I want to share this experience with all people whom suffering from MC , By the way from my experince Dead see mud will leave your skin clean , soft , without any irritation or dryness , its not toxic like Clove oil non irritanat like Apple cide vineger , Sorry if my english languge was not fluent ....

Hi, before a six month my four years old daughter diagnosed with MC. It start to appear in her upper legs that time there was about 25 spot in both leg, so her dermatologist suggest to remove it by cryotherapy. I know it is painful procedure but I decide to do it because I was afraid to scratch it. Any how me and my wife were happy because all has been removed but before a few weeks it start to reappear again so we decide to use Benzac 5% on the new one. After a few days these spots become dry and disppeared. We thought at that moment that the problem was finished. UNFORTUNATELY, we discoverd a very small numerous number of MC on her both small arms, they were very small and almost cover her arms and start to cover her left cheek. We were shocked. Her dermatologist said we can do nothing just give her a multivitamins which contain Zinc because Zinc will boost her immunity to fight the virus, also he advised us to put Benzac 5% every other days with a moisturizer cream (Bioderma PO zinc) cuz that cream will cause dryness and irritaion for her skin .....

I was very sad for her then I had an idea. What if I use Dead sea mud on her arms and legs to see what will happened . Especially that this mud is used to treat various types of skin disease such as Psoriasis and acne. Actually I'm living in Jordan( where dead Sea locate in) and I used to put that mud on my body when I go to swim in Dead sea, actually it tighten your skin, make it smooth, and it has an exfoliating effect cuz it is rich in sulfur and other minerals , Before two days I started to put Dead sea mud on her skin and we leave it for 15 minutes till it become dry then we wash it with water and Dettol shower gel. We noticed that after shower all the spots become big, red, and inflamed but after one hour they come back to its normal size. Some of these spots become white, really I dont know what that mean?? Is it a good sign or not... I hope it will work and I will tell you what will happened within a few weeks with her. Sorry if my english language was not fluent ....

It is me again, this is the 4th day from treating my daughter from MC by Dead sea mud. we found that all spots with white heads become black and dried. I'm not sure if the size decreased, we will continue on that treatment and see what will happened.... By the way I read on the net about using clove oil for treating MC and I found that tgis oil is toxic and cancerous material for human being , if you want to use it you have to dilute it.

[YEA]   Its me again, thanks god most of the spot gone within one week, still one big white spot we did not treat it by the mud, we used to treat it by painting it by Benzac 5% then cover it by medical plaster, Because we were afraid that my daughter scratch it, - and as you know these white spots contains a liquid rich in th MC virus, and this liquid in very contagious ....

Any how today we put Dead sea Mud on that spot for 15 minutes, I think it will work because after we clean the mud we see some blood, we put some Betadine and cover it again by a medical plaster ...

Dead sea Mud, Its is a great treatment for the spots of MC, we paint these these spots twice a day, wthin 1 week all become dry, small, then disappered, I recomend it strongly, it has no side effect, it is not toxic or cancerous material like clove oil, no irritation like Apple cider vineger, no dryness effect, it will leave your skin sfot and clean.

Hi all, I started using ACV to treat my daughters 4 spots on the inside of her thigh 3 nights ago. The larger ones are drying up and looking dark inside but dozens of others have popped up on her chest, legs, arms virtually overnight. These are really red and angry looking.... Please tell me this is normal. I have read that they normally start looking worse before they get better but now I am starting to panic. Last night I soaked a bandaid in ACV and left it on overnight and then starting seeing all these other spots pop up. They look more irrated then the original spots. Could her body be reacting and attacking these spots that were so small that I could not see them before?

Any help would be great appreciated :)

Hello all, first I'll give my story. In May of 2011 I got molluscum from my bf. I knew he had something I saw a bump but I thought it was a zit. No. We use condoms but that did not help I guess. I was treating my bumbs by putting Apple Cider Vinegar on a q tip and scrubbing the shit outta of those things. It would hurt and I would also use tea tree oil. I would put it on a cotten ball and just coat my legs or any place I saw weird redness (no bumps yet just looked like they were trying to come. ) This worked. I had scarring that I used vit e oil for and I got rid of it after about 3 months. Then I spent the summer with my boyfriend here I am with it again. I'm using my old method except I also use aloe vera gel to calm my skin. NO LOTION. NO SHAVING. Keep it dry and wear clothes that dont rub. Try to be naked. Lol. I know weird but it helps. Wash everything! I became a neat freak. Oh I also started putting Apple Cider Vinegar in a spray bottle and spray my whole body b4 I get in the shower. I let it set for as long as I can. Its seems help or at least preventing it from becoming worse.. Hope tht helps!

Alright I'm a 15 year old male. I've had molluscum on my right arm around the middle of the wrist and inside elbow for like a year now maybe. I'm thinking I got it because I have eczema. It started off as just 1 bump, then soon enough, 3-5 bumps. After wrestling season ended, I had around 10, then I started picking at them, then soon enough around 40-50. I did not know what this was, so I did some online research. I searched "MC" on google, and it looked like what was on my arm. So I went to the doctor about a week ago. He confirmed that it was indeed MC. He told me what all doctors say: "it will go away on its own". I wasn't buyin it. There had to be some sort of treatment. I did more research that night. I was'nt finding anything. I was so frustrated because I cannot go back to wrestling until these are cleared up, because obviously they are contagious. I'm wondering if I had spread it to any of the other wrestlers because I was wrestling without knowing what they were.

After hours and hours of research I came across the ACV method. I thought "what the heck I guess I should try it". The first night, I took an ACV bath, and applied ACV to a cotton ball, put it on the most affected areas, and put a big bandaid pad over them. The next morning I saw a major change. The bumps turned a dark brown color, and the swelling of the bumps went down. However, the skin around the bumps looked red, so I assumed that it was irritating my skin, so tonight I'm going to try just applying ACV to qtips and rubbing the bumps, so I don't irritate my skin. I'm a little bit confused though, because the main MC bumps look like they're scabbing, so I'm wondering if I should keep treating those ones too? This really sucks because I'm constantly at war with my skin. I battled impetigo (type of staph) about a month ago and won, and currently battling ringworm (not as concerned about that though).

I'm just praying and hoping to God that I don't spread these to anyone else. If someone could email me at Sanata50lbsburrito(at) and tell me some other steps and tips I could use, maybe some MC stories, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks

Hey all, These things suck... I tried everything to cure them. Putting apple cider vinegar on them (did nothing), drinking apple cider vinegar (almost threw up), in the end the best thing that works is putting toothpaste on them and putting a little circle band aid on them and reapplying a fresh bandage after every shower. Guys if they're on your penis, don't masturbate or trim the pubic hair it will only spread and I assume it's the same with you ladies.

You were most likely infected thanks to a towel shared by someone who was already infected or through genital contact. They can take a while to go away but with the above mentioned regimen should clear up in less than a week. So get on it!

I'm 14, and I was diagnosed with Molluscum contagiousum about two months ago. When I look back on it, it wasn't as bad as it is now! The doctor put acid on it every 2 weeks, and I've had it done twice. It seems to blister, disapear, then multiply several times making it horrid. I tried the apple cider vinegar treatment about 3 days ago. I applied ACV soaked cotton balls, drank ACV diluted with water to rid the virus internally, and have taken a 45 minute bath with 2 cups of ACV each night. It's result now is a few small have popped up, some have turned black and scabbed, but most have became very red and white tipped. It's a very emmbarrising issue I have to deal with as a teenage girl. I have to wear sweatpants in gym and change in the showers at the locker room. Not to mention I am going to Florida in 2 weeks, and will be unable to wear shorts or swim unless it clears up. It has reduced me to tears several times for I have a harsh case with 75-100 bumps all over my right leg with large clusters around my knee, and spreading to my right knee. I'm tall and skinny, underweight, and maybe that's why my immune system allowed this virus slip in. I am going through a harsh time right now, battling many emotional issues, and this is my main issue which has brought my self esteem to an all time low. It's very hard for me. And I'm so scared I'll have to live with this for a long time. I want nothing more in the world for this horrid virus to leave my skin before it tips me over the edge. I may be over reacting but looks are all I got, I've been told. When will this dang apple cider vinegar work!! ?? Someone please tell me if it's on the right track!! :''(

I have had mc for a little over four months now and im currently six months pregnant.. This has bin a nightmare!!! I want to get rid of this so bad... I went to the Dr. as soon as I seen a few and he didn't explain to me what it was and that it could spread all over my body and that it was contagious.. At first they just said it will go away and that it wasn't anything serious, they didn't say anything else so I didn't make anything of it. Now it's a lot worse and I went back to the Dr. and same thing again no explanation.. I feel that it was irresponsible of him... He just briefly told me what it was called (was surprised I remembered) and said not to mess with it. When I got home I go online and start researching and it scared me to find out everthing on this terrible virus! What if I did remember... It would have probably been worse! When I go back to the Dr. I'm going to tell them that that was a mistake on their part to not inform me what I had.

Any who.. I am happy to have found this page... I purchased the ACV and left it on for about 4 hours while I took a nap but it was very uncomfortable and the smell urghh so nasty... When I took off the bandages I saw that the ACV had surfaced the white spots that weren't so big before... I'm hoping to God that this works... I'm tired of being itchy and feeling this pain urghhhhhh it's like go away already!!! Lol I'm trying to be patient tho... But after this is gone OMG never again! .. I don't wish this on anyone!

My daughter got MC about two weeks ago, immediately started using A microderm by a company called philosophy and a tea tree face spritz by Lush. The micro derm is a face wash but you leave it on for 1 minute. Wash it off, pat dry with towel, wait a few minutes then spritz with tea tree water and rub into affected area. She had a huge patch about 30, it has reduced to about 10 and they are tiny bumps. The philosophy micro derm is used in the morn and the night. It cost about 40.00 and the lush is about 15.00 but it has worked for her- she is only 7 so it was very embarrasing for her.

Both of my small boys, 3 & 5, have molluscum contagiosum. It started out as a few bumps but has recently started spreading all over their torsos. After reading everything that I could find on this virus, I have decided that I would try the Recovery Spray from Dr. Wheatgrass. I haven't received it yet, but it has VERY high reviews with most people seeing great results within a few weeks. I am hopeful that it will work that well for my boys because I don't want to put them through the misery of the ACV treatment and this spray is reported to be painless. I just wanted to mention this and let everyone know that I will report back with the results. Wish me luck!!
