I along with everyone else here have contracted molluscum. It has only been a couple of weeks (that I noticed anyways), don't know where I got it from (have a few guesses) and right now could care less as I just want them gone ASAP. I have over 40 of them on my waistline and new small ones seem to be appearing all over (or I am just finding them)regularily slowly creeping towards the area I really dont want them on!

I am 32 yrs old, divorced and I have recently started seeing "my dream girl" and am trying to slow things down as much as possible but at some point I will not be able to keep pushing back telling her the truth. I do not want to lose her and think about this daily, which I am sure is not helping the stress factor. I spend at least a 2 hrs a day reading up on it and still cannot find treatments that everyone agrees on

What is the fastest way to get rid of these (I realize there are negative experiences with all methods)? I have went to have some frozen (has only been a week-should they have scabbed up from the freezing already...they just seemed to have sweelled but not breaking or oozing or scabbing), using zymaderm (but only for a few days). How long should I try each b4 giving up and trying something else. I also see many people on here propose the popping method....has anyone had substantial negative results from this, and why wont dermatologists do it?

I wanted to punch the first dermatologist in the face when I started asking him questions as his non-challant attitude was totally uncalled for. He clearly does not understand nor care how this puts your life on total hold and the stress it causes. Needless to say i have made appointment with a different dermatologist. This forum has helped a lot knowing other people know what it feels like, especially those who are in fear of losing someone special

Can someone give me some feedback on when to give up on freezing and when to try popping? If i pop them and it does spread from popping how ling will it take to show that (will I have to wait 2-7 wks to see them)
