anyone have experience with warts called "moluskum" (not certin of the spelling)? my dd has sooooo many. our ped. has said over and over that i should not do anything about them, but they have taken over her bottom she just had one on her face, but suddenly she has a few more small ones popping up. i don't think that they hurt, but have the idea that when they become inflamed, they are uncomfortable. especially in the diaper area.
any ideas? experience?

two girls and another on the way in feburary!

I am sorry your dd is dealing with this. There have been many many discussions on this. Try searching for "molluscum". This shoud provide results. Some have suggested using Tea Trea Oil, I have heard vinegar, I have heard do nothing.

We used what may not be considered an AP approach, but it worked and we have had no reoccurrence since 2003. Our dermatologist used an extract from a blister beetle. It hurts going on, scabs over, but when the scab heals, they are all gone. They do not come back. She strongly urged against any thought of "freezing". She said nothing positive to say about it.
