I have 2 children that were diagnosed with Molluscum 3 weeks ago. I treated them with the Duofilm as advised by the Dr's. The Duofilm was burning their skin, making it turn white, but I saw no improvement. During this time, I had their skin uncovered, and the Molluscum was spreading under umpits, legs, arms and stomach. I felt very frustrated with the thought of waiting out 1-2 years for my kids to recover from this. I decided to research online and found that Apple Cider Vinegar along with covering the spots to be very helpful and good success rates with this method. So for a week I was deligent about showering my children (at night), dried them (using a hairdryer/or air dry) washing their clothing daily and applying moistened cotton buds with apple cider vinegar on each individual spot. Lets just say there were alot of tears and frustration over 10 days of doing this as the skin was becoming raw with each change of bandaid/tape (I tried every bandaid and delicate tape out there!). Plus this was very time consuming doing this morning and evening. The Molluscum spots were staying about the same size, some were coming to a head where the white core was at the verge of coming out. It was very slow seeing improvements and I was having a hard time keeping this up! After more research found another forum that suggested using Tea Tree oil. Since then there was no turning back. In less than 24hrs of applying one drop of tea tree oil individually to each spot (new cotton each time) I saw amazing results. BTW: I left all the spots uncovered doing this, making me very nervous as I was worried about spreading them by not having them covered. The Molluscum that had been there for 2 weeks (smaller ones), were shrinking in size, the Mollusucum that was more mature, red with the white core (looking like it was ready to open) dried up and never broke. Now it has been 3 days and I think I can pretty well say that my children are healing from this. I am so thankful to the tea tree oil (Thursday Plantation, Australian Tee Tree Oil)! Now this summer is looking more promising for us. It has been stressful, tiring and challening for us all, but now we can see results. I just wanted to share this information with everyone going through this and I know how helpful discussion threads on Molluscum helped me.
