What can I put on it to help itching and stop any dryness.

Will a simple (as in the brand) mosturiser do? Or should I buy something in particular?

Calomine lotion is great for dabbing on or Aveeno for all over moisturising although if there's any heads you might want to avoid smearing a lotion in case it spreads . You have my sympathies as my DC had this for over a year sad

Great thanks. I didn't think of calomine so will pick some up tomorrow. At the moment she has few on her foot and one elbow. I'm hoping they clear quickly and it doesn't become a prolonged issue! Over a year sounds hell!

DS2 had this. We were using Aveeno anyway for his eczema so stuck with that. They spread quite a lot, and one got a bit infected - and then they were all gone. Didn't really seem to bother him.

Over a year for us too sad

Posted too soon - meant to say that I was told by another parent that acne cream got rid of it on their dd

Seeing a homeopath cleared up both my Dcs molluscan. DS had thuja but that didn't work with Dd so she had something different.
