When it comes to curing your molluscum, there are many options to choose from, including over the counter treatments. Doctors may tell you to let the virus resolve on its own without treatment. This solution could take months or years to come full circle. Other Doctors might physically remove the lesions using cryotherapy (freezing the lesions with liquid nitrogen), curettage (piercing and scraping each bump) or laser therapy. Many times, these courses of treatment require more than one trip to the doctor to get rid of every bump. Going these routes may make you feel overwhelmed or not comfortable with the pain that can occur after treatment or the possible scarring.
In other cases, your doctor may prescribe different medications to resolve your lesions. These could include trichloroacetic acid, topical podophyllotoxin cream, such as Condylox, cantharidin (which is obtained from the blister beetle and applied by your doctor) or imiquimod (Aldara). Many of these medications have ingredients that can burn, blister, or leave scars.
The good news about OTC molluscum treatments
Physically removing your molluscum bumps or using medication with names you cannot pronounce is not your only option. There is a myriad of over the counter treatments that you can try such as apple cider vinegar or oregano oil. But what we have found in many of our customers is that these treatments do not work to resolve their molluscum.
