Has anyone used this to treat MC for their child? If so where to buy it from and how much to give.
Thanks

Hi I live abroad but I used a tincture on my 4 year olds MC that contains thuja as one of the ingredients. I believe it did help them go away quicker. Its called Zymaderm. I'm not sure if you can get in the UK or not. I believe (don't quote me here!) that thuja is homeopathic and you can get it in the homeopathic meds section at boots. I have also seen several threads on here about people using Molludab. Good luck :-)
