Cure for molluscum contagiosum

My daughter suffered from Molluscum contagiosum about six months ago. She had several on the back of her thigh. They didn't really do any thing for years and then they started to spread down her legs. I took her to the doctor and he suggested freezing them off. After two very traumatic treatments which prevented my daughter from sitting on her bottom comfortably we ended the drs visits.I did try the Apple cider vinegar treatment with no effect other than burning my daughter's skin. Then I found a post online, I can't find the website otherwise I would repost the site and I started the following regime for three weeks. After three weeks her Molluscum contagiosum went away completely.
Tea tree oil on every bump morning and night. I used Desert Essence tea tree oil available on Amazon. I made sure I used a different applicator for every bump. I did not cover them up with a bandaid unless the center "core" was exposed. It's important that the bumps dry out so if they are not in the contagious stage covering with a bandaid may make things worse. I made sure her bumps were covered with clothing however (the core is the thin stem sticking out of the center of the bump). If the core was exposed I tried to remove it with tweezers or put neosporin on it and then covered it with a small bandaid. The core is what is contagious and is how the Molluscum contagiosum spreads. My daughter had sponge baths for three weeks and washed her hair in the sink (because she didn't have any on her head). I made sure to avoid getting the bumps wet. So no baths, prolonged showers, swimming in pools or hot tubs. If her bumps did get wet, as soon as she got out of the water, we patted the area dry very lightly to avoid spreading (even used a blow dryer set on low to dry the area). I changed her bedding every day and her PJs every night. It was very labour intensive and took some time but this method was VERY EFFECTIVE. I cannot stress enough to buy good tea tree oil and keep the area covered with clothing and dry unless the bumps have opened. Good luck.
