Molluscum contagiosum is a contagious viral skin infection that is caused by the poxvirus. It is easily transmitted through any manner of close contact–wrestling, public swimming pools, locker rooms, shared towels, and sexual contact with active lesions. People with compromised immune systems are particularly vulnerable if exposed to the virus.

A physician may recommend treatment for molluscum contagiosum based on several considerations–age, medical history, extent and location of the outbreak, and expected outcome of the condition. If the lesions are out of sight, the preference may be just to let molluscum virus run its course. This could take weeks, months, or even years. Other conventional options include removing the lesions and other painful interventions.

Many prefer to end the course of the outbreak rather than waiting indefinitely for resolution. Naturopathix, Inc. offers a product that is FDA approved as a homeopathic formula for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum. ZymaDerm is applied directly to the bumps and can be used on the face and private areas in children as young as 9 months of age. It is a natural, non-toxic topical that has been clinically tested.

If your child is over the age of nine months and has an outbreak of molluscum contagiosum, we can help.
