    Default molluscum on eye - help :(

    My poor little girl has molluscum. They have generally been on her legs, trunk and wrists but she now has one on her eyelid. It's so red and sore. I have asked two Drs about them previously with both telling me nothing can be done.

    Has anyone got any ideas for the one on her eye? Something natural that won't hurt her eyes? I've stupidly googled molluscum on eyes and I'm now so scared

    Oh no poor thing.
    My DD2 was plagued by the dreaded molluscum for the best part of 2 years but luckily it was contained to her thighs mostly.

    The only thing i did that seemed to help was put apple cider vinegar on them.
    Id soak a cotton tip in the vinegar and then rub it onto the spots.

    You may be able to dab a bit of that on it if youre careful not to let it drip into her eye.

    Aw thank you. It's so horrible. I always feel people are judging her/us because of it. I'll give that a go. She's really paranoid of me touching them so I'll have to bribe her somehow I think.

    Thank you for your quick response x

    Maybe show her with a cotton tip on a few away from her eye to prove it isnt going to hurt her first.

    It is awful i hated that DD2 had them and was glad when the cooler weather came along and i could cover her up.
    I had a hard time believing theyd ever clear up & go away but low and behold thats honestly what happened. Over the course of a few days they miraculously all cleared up and theres no sign of them. After her having them for over 18mths almost 2yrs i was so relieved

    I had them growing up and I remember they just disappeared one day! We tried so many things on them and I still have a scar on my chest from one they biopsied. So strange
