EA - 8 hour cream for molluscum. Is this the right one?

DS has had molluscum for ages and it is finally getting better. DD (9 months) has now got it. It seems to be spreading because of us handling her so would like to get a head start on treating her and try Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream.

Is this the right one? Also is this a good price?

Hi Bozza-couldn't see it on that link. Its a white tube with black writing and is called Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. Its 20 ish pounds in the shops but can ussually find it from about 14 on tinternet. You'll never look back!

Bozza Tue 01-Mar-05 12:22:41

So you think that is a good price then?

Yes-I don't think you'll get it much cheaper.

I've followed/contributed to a lot the molluscum threads so I know you don't think it works coddie. But your remedy of chicken pox is unlikely to work either due to the fact that DD had a bad case in October. Thought it might be worth a try with a baby.

Pamina I used the calc carb with DS too after research on the internet. Not sure if it worked or not but I think his body is starting to fight and quite a few have gone. But was not sure how to administer to a 9mo. Would have to be put in her food wouldn't it? But you're supposed to swallow without touching so was not sure. Anyway will report back.

Well I thought you were supposed to expell them into the lid and then tip them directly into the mouth. They are very small for a 9 mo to pick up although I suppose she might be able to. But whether she would then put it in her mouth is anyone's guess. Letting me do it is very unlikely. Just ordered the EA so will see how that goes.
