    All 3 of my daughters had it as well. DD1 had a mild case which was limited to her thighs and bottom and resolved itself within about 6 months. DD2 had them the worst. Arms, legs, bottom, and a lot of them. Each one would become sore and inflamed before it cleared up. It was horrible. She had them for at least 18 months. Multiple trips to the drs and was always told the same thing, it's harmless and will resolve itself or we can burn them off (I never considered this an option for her, to traumatic and would scar). DD3 has them now and it's been over 12 months. She has a very mild case limited to her bottom, there's about 3 left so should be gone soon.

    I feel so bad for your DS it has been going on for so long and he still has so many I wish I had a miracle cute for you.

    My DD1 had these for a good 6 months they were everywhere from neck, torso and groin. I tried a lot of things to get rid of them. This is going to sound crazy but do you know anyone that breast feeds? I made this special balm up with breastmilk, grapeseed oil and coconut oil. Within a week of putting it on them every night they were gone.. Might sound bizarre but worked wonders here..

    Can you go to a naturopath?

    I know a great one if you're in Sydney.

    My ds1 had them but the ointment did help.
    My sisters kid had warts on his face, the dermatologist said that they wouldn't remove them and that it wasn't a big deal coz he was a kid 😕

    Anyways she went to a naturopath and the cream that they gave totally helped and they fell off.

    My son has this... I got a little vial of stuff over the internet and it cleared them up and I also got a cream over the internet which really helped. My son has them really bad and they cleared up in about a month. The key is getting the body to respond to the virus which causes them. I will find out the names and come back....

    Conzerol and molludab, I got one from the US and one from the UK. I tried them both at the same time so I am not sure which one worked. I think they are both about $50 each.
    My son had them on this face and now he has none!

    We saw a dermatologist for DD's and she painted them with cantharidin (beetle juice). It took 2 visits (4 weeks apart) to get them all but they haven't come back. They blistered and were painful for her but worth it. She also gets eczema and those areas were where they flared the most. Apparently one irritates the other and it is a bit of a cycle. The dermatologist said not to let the cortisone for the eczema touch the molloscums though.

    Just an update- we went to the dermatologist 5 days ago, he dabbed them with dry ice. DS was traumatised because the stupid man told him "this stuff is a little bit cold", no warning about that it bl00dy hurts. And seeing as DS has hundreds of these buggers, it was pretty painful for him.
    Now, all the ones he got (he missed quite a lot ) are red including the surrounding skin. On some of them, they have blistered and scabbed, which the dr said would happen (well he said they would scab, not blister). On most of them though, the little molluscums look perfectly intact within the red skin. So... I dunno if the rest of them are yet to scab, or whether it was a fail.
    Poor little DS's legs look AWFUL. He looks like he's covered in chicken pox. I'm keeping him in long pants but the weather is getting warmer. So. over. it.

    @CMF do you have an update? @soon2b4 what was the amounts of the lotion you made up?

    Just been to the dr over these spots and told it was this molluscum thing. He has quite a few on his legs and 2 on his face I was told not to do anything drastic or they'll scar and to just leave them, but I'm willing to try some sort of lotion that won't burn or anything. Worried now they'll spread, they look bad and I don't want heaps on him over the summer

    We popped DS, I tried creams, essential oils. Popping worked, pricked with a pin, squeezed out the core, dabbed betadine on and put a bandaid dot over it for the night. We did a few every night (and bribed DS with a lolly snake) until they were all gone.
