My son (12 years old) went to an indoor water park back in November.... soon afterward we saw the bumps on his back, apparently from the tube he was wearing. I took him to the doctor which diagnosed him with Molluscum... like everyone else he told me that they would eventually go away, although it may take a few months. As summer approached, I became more concerned because I wanted him to enjoy his summer swimming. He and I began researching Molluscum on the internet and found this forum. I didn't realize how common this was. I read through lots of peoples post and figured he had gotten this from the waterpark like lots of the other people. I found something at Walgreens called "ZYMADERM for Molluscum Contagious" it is liquid that you put on the bumps twice a day. It says it will take up to a month to get rid of them. As of right now, he still has the bumps, lots of them have gotten a lot smaller. I know several have already vanished. But I wanted to put this post on here so that everyone knows that there is something out there for this. It is over the counter and it is about $25....well worth it. I have gone to several pharmacies in and around my small town and as far as I know Walgreens is the ONLY place that carries it. I believe you can go to their website and order it if you don't have a Walgreens near you, not positive on that though. Good Luck to everyone!
