When I last posted an update about my daughter’s molluscum, I honestly didn’t think those things would ever go away, but they have!!! Yeah! I took a photo a few weeks ago as they all started to scab over at once.
Now when I look at the same area on her belly, all I see are a few very small scars which the doctor said will go away in time.
While every doctor I have talked to has said that molluscum are simply a virus and will go away on their own, I am truly convinced that our tea tree and bleach routine kept them from getting infected and lessened the duration. Basically we applied Tea Tree Essential Oil to the individual molluscum daily using a Q-tip then once a week I added a 1/4 cup of bleach to her bath water.
All in all, we still dealt with the unsightly bumps for about 8 months, but considering I have heard they can last up to 2 years, I will consider us lucky.
