I have the same problem with my 6 year old son and these bumps just developed out of nowhere and doctors have adviced that they will go away on their own up to 2 years. He had some mild eczema and they seem to be increasing. Some people suggested burning them but I hear it is very painful for him.
I have bought some "heal molluscum" oil from healing natural oils. It has some tea tree oil smell to it and I am to apply it to the bumps religioulsy 3 times a day with the promise of seeing results within 6 weeks.
Is there anything else I can do to help him? I was told he might have got it from touching a door knob or another kid etc... So if it is a virus does it mean that ingesting medicine is useless?
