Have any of you used Poxiderm for molluscum?

Getting really fed up with it now. My dc3 has had it for 6 months, no sign of it going away despite occasional ones getting inflamed from time to time,. Now realised that dd1 has a cluster on her neck, and want to treat it until it gets worse.

It has good reviews, but it goes against my instincts to order medical stuff of the Internet, hence would appreciate any feedback

No, but my DS also suffers from molluscum so watching with interest. I have taken the approach of not really treating with anything as everything I read said it will go away in its own time whatever you do. DS has had it for probably almost a year now and new warts are still appearing. It is a real pain!

I've ordered some, as good reviews from a number of different sources. Sill hoping for some feedback before I use it though. My dd3's are reallyinflamed at the moment, and I would like to try and get rid of them before the holidays.

I used it when my daughter had it about a year ago on her face and thighs. We had been dealing with those pesky bumps for so long and her doctor kept telling me they would go away. I finally got fed up and took her to the specialist and he was the one who told me to get the poxiderm. It took about 3 weeks for them to all go away but now it looks like she never had it! I was nervous because of the molluscum on her face but it took care of it like a charm and didnt cause any scars or irritation. Hope you had good results... I wish I saw your post a few months ago!
