I've had molluscum for about a couple months now. Since November...

and I've started the Aldera treatment and I've stopped after a month. They said it could take about 6 months until it goes away...and it just stays there.

Nothing happens...and I know I have to wait, but I'm tired of waiting.

But something just happened. Last night I went out drinking with the girls and it was a light night...but I woke up this morning and one of them enlarged...and it's painful, like it's about to pop. I don't want to pop it because it might spread and I do not want that to happen. I have an appointment with the doctor this Thursday thank god, but now I'm wondering if this is normal...is it herpes?! Is it something worse? I'm not even going to sleep on my sheets tonight because I was in bed all day and I just noticed just now.

I'm so sad about this.

  • hey girlfrom 619.. were you able to get this resolved? Best to post molloscum questions in the larger thread, lots of folks only go there to post read/reply, etc.I had one lesion (out of about 20?) that was painful, I think because it was larger than the rest (sounds like yours) don't worry too much about it, just have it treated and continue a treatment plan to rid yourself of it. Be ready for a long battle either with lots of treatment visits or possibly treatments from home.

  • Try Zymaderm. It definitely helps a lot. You need to apply it twice a day. I recommend buying 2 bottles of it with the body wash.
