Who am I?
I am father whose daughter caught this viral infection and became distressed when trying to find a cure. Not only did I find the doctors to be unhelpful but also found a lot of misleading and confusing information on the internet to be overwhelming and some websites even trying to scam money out of you don’t fall for it!
So in this page I will tell of my experience of it which things we tried and how we eventually got rid of it.
How it affected my daughter
Molluscum contagiosum (MC) affects mainly children but can affect any age. It’s a viral infection that is very contagious but most people are resistant to the virus it is passed on through contact or objects towels, toys etc. MC will normally have a lifespan of 12 months to 5 years depending on the immune system.
In my daughter’s case I was unsure what it was to me it just looked like a white head spot on her arm. This, of course, was what I thought and squeezed it myself, when squeezing I noticed it had a waxy core that came out not knowing what it was just thought nothing else of it and left it at that.
This is where the problems started one spot had now turned into three, confused I took my daughter to the doctors and learned what this actually wasMolluscum Contagiosum, he gave the advice of leaving it and telling us it will go in 2 years or less. I couldn’t leave it at that so had to search for remedies and cures to try to take it away as it kept spreading in total it spread to around 10 big and small spots which is not as bad as some cases but still I wanted to get rid of them for fear of bullying as they are not a pretty sight.
The pictures here are of my daughter’s arm a few what was on her arm both are at a later stage of apple cider vinegar treatment the one on the right was the largest and got very angry.
