I initally found red bumps on my genital area about three months ago. Initially, like many I thought it was just a shaving rash and hoped it would go away but it didn't. I eventually went to see my GP and they suspected that I may have MC. From there I went to my local Sexual health clinic and they froze the molluscum. This did not help them to go. I then read quite a lot about tea tree oil and thuja and echinacea and started taking these three together in the hope that it would combat this horrible horrible virus. After one and a half months of carrying out this treatment, they seemed to have gone. I shaved the area for the first time in about 4 months but i was horrified to see about ten still there. I really hope i have not spread them even more now. I just want to cry. I have to rid of these soon as i have completely lost my confidence over this and am so hygiene conscious its unreal now!!! Does anyone have any suggestions that have worked??? Please help!!!!

  • I feel your pain as do most of us on this forum. Its been 8mo. for me and im losing it... Im wrapped in seran wrap, cotton pads soaked in apple cider vinegar smelling like a salad and burning from it on the 4th day. Been using zymaderm after shower in the morning, and just started yesterday on tea tree oil to add to the equation in the afternoon. Ive had them frozen 2 times, burned 4-5 times at the std clinic with either salicylic acid or something that starts with an L,,, cant really remember right now. The freezing done by a dermatologist worked for ****... but the acid did actually work, just didnt stop the spreading really and after the first time I was still using a luffa ball thingy in the shower and spreading it all over my body, which the std doc told me stop using after the next visit... But out of everyone on here I havent heard anyone but me talk about getting treated with this acid... It works butleaves the worst scars. zymaderm worked a little and stops incoming spots of forming into bumps but I still see tiny red and pink spots that want to pop up... so now im trying the acv application (apple cider vinegar), and also now have tea tree oil soap to use... Waiting on results... and tonight i feel like im on fire. so somethings goin on here... I Hope it kills em all... Good luck... Dont shave dont use a luffa ball thingy and try everything to kill these things..... Mollescum Killer
