My daughter who is now 6 since june started out with these bumps on the back of her knee a bit over a year ago, we went to the doctor and was told they were just skin tags (at that time she only had about 5-6) well the whole year through Kindergarten she began to get more on the same area so i took her to the family doctor and did not say what it was he just asked if we wanted them off, so we agreed to have them frozen, well I had no idea how painful it would be for my baby girl she screamed and squirmed so much he actually missed a few and got her normal skin, anyway we left there and by the time we got home she had 3 more then when we went we decided NOT to ever have that done again yet kids were making fun of her "kudies" etc
so 3 days ago we went to the Pediatrician and she took one look at them and said it was MC, there is no cure and it has to run it's course which can be anywhere from 6 months to 5 years, I was horrifed ...she wrote the name down told me to go home and goggle it so I have been on the internet ALL weekend trying to find a way to rid this stuff. Funny thing is.. I dont understand how it is so "highly contagious" as she told me it was seeing how my daughter has had this for well over a year now and no onelse in the household, her soccer team, dance class or friends have contracted it. I have read many things online the last 2 days and I am skeptical of some, and curious of others. I did go to our natural food store today I purchased the organic apple cider vinegar, but I am wondering.. how long should I leave the dampened cotton ball and bandaid on the bumps? Where online can I purchase the lemon myrtle? and how in the world did you moms get your children to allow you to "pop" them she freaks out when I try to clean them and take bandaids off. So any adive will help. thank you
oh yeah I forgot to mention that the ped doc counted them Friday and she has 16 on that leg, 6 on the other thigh and 3 on her back right shoulder then told my DD that she is not to touch them, pick them, scratch them and the only thing she can do is look at them. How in the world do they expect a child to remember that when she is at school and goes to scratch and I am not there to tell her not to? She starts first grade tomorrow and I am afraid to tell the teacher and then have people exclude her. I feel so bad for her.
