I believe I have found out what my four year old has.....Molluscum Contagiosum. Has anybody got any cure or treatment information on this? There are several websites that state they have a product to cure it and I was just wondering how reliable this stuff is.....anybody got any experience with this?????

  • I wouldn't trust anything on the websites especially things containging silver because silver can be very dangerous. I have heard alot about using luekosilk tape on children but my five year old can't even keep tape on a regular wart. The best thing you can do is go to the dermatologist and see what they say. I have been so worried that I will give this to my child and I just couldn't imagine it. If your doc recommends freezing or burning just remember it can cause skin discoloration for a couple years. Also, keep in mind that this is a common skin virus among children so don't stress about it too much and believe me I know alot about stressing over this because I am going on 7 months now. I hope this helps!
