Molloscum Contagiosum

Last year I was diagnosed with the skin infection Molloscum Contagiosum. I had never heard of molloscum before but found out that it was very easily researched online. I also found out that it is more easily researched than treated.

Molloscum Contagiosum is a viral skin infection belonging to the poxvirus family. Molloscum appears as small, usually skin colored, painless bumps. As the name suggests Molloscum is extremely contagious. It can be spread by skin-to-skin contact or contact with an object containing the virus, such as a towel. It is also common in wrestling and in gymnastics.

My Molloscum is on the back of my neck and upper back. Last year i had my Molloscum treated by means of liquid nitrogen. there were results but for around two weeks i had to deal with the papules which as a result of the liquid nitrogen became swollen and red and filled with pus. I have been on many forums concerning this matter trying to find alternative treatment options because as in almost every Molloscum case, the papules return.

Every time I enter a forum each person claims they found results with a certain method. Then seven or so following posts say that the particular method doesn't work and that their method is the right one. Please help. Thank you
