Molluscum is a common skin infection caused by a virus. It occurs all over the world and affects both children and adults.
The lesions are raised, flesh or pink colored bumps with a white waxy center. They can appear as a single bump or in clusters. Scratching the lesion open to reveal the white center can spread the virus to others or to other parts of the body, resulting in more bumps. The virus can also be transmitted via objects such as towels, clothing and even gym equipment. If you think you may have the characteristics of the molluscum virus, it is best to get diagnosed by your doctor before deciding on the best cure for you. Your doctor can tell if you have molluscum by just examining you, so no testing is needed.
How do I get rid of Molluscum?
There is no cure for the virus, but there are several ways to treat molluscum lesions, including procedures done in your doctor’s office, home remedies, or the use of creams/liquids/medications purchased online or in a drugstore.
Procedures done in a doctor’s office are often painful and require more than one session to resolve all of the bumps. These procedures include:
- Cryotherapy, which is freezing the lesion with liquid nitrogen.
- Curettage uses an instrument to pierce the core of the lesion and then the waxy center is scraped out.
Others try less painful home remedies, including:
- Applying tea tree oil to the lesions many times per day.
- Using apple cider vinegar on the lesions.
- Rubbing coconut oil on the lesions.
- Taking a colloidal oatmeal bath.
Though these are natural remedies, unfortunately, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil are largely ineffective and take too long to see results. Colloidal oatmeal baths only soothe itchy skin and do not actually get rid of the lesions.
