Molluscum cure!!! Very cheap :)

The BEST thing I found to kill molluscum is ACETONE in the form of cheap nail varnish remover.

Also Germoline liquid plaster is good for individual bumps, especially on face. Do not cover whole areas with this though as it drys out skin and can make it worse.

Acetone is a well known cure for herpes and cold sores, but no one seems to know it also kills molluscum.

Acetone actually healed the skin and took it from red raw and covered in bumps to healthy and healed in DAYS!

If you try this and it works for you please spread the word via the Internet, so others may benefit.

Ds had molluscum for over a year. GP advised no treatment other than time.

Gp also advised us no treatment. Got some teatree oil antiseptic from pharmacy (having researched on the net) and it totally clears them up. No need to pop or squeeze them.

I haven't tried Acetone, but dd has eczema so wanted to try something mild first.
