Found out my 3yr old has this. It is on and around his neck. About cried when we found out there was no cure, and that it would go away on its on but could take up to a year. We have tried aldara cream but that didn't help. I really want something that will help this go away and not spread. Any suggestions?

My daughters both had it on their arms. First off, as yuck as it sounds you have to the nodules out. I read this in multiple places on the net. You just have to be very clean about it. It should not hurt, but may bleed a bit. They will NOT heal unless you get the little white hard center out. Nothing else comes out but that little bit, not like a pimple where there is extra pus. You might have to use twezeers but most of them I was able to just pickÂ them offÂ with my VERYÂ CLEAN and disinfected finger nail. Â Then I put salicylic acid on it in the form of acne medication (the kind that is sold as wart remover is too harsh for sensitive areas like necks, arms & faces) & alsoÂ Eucerine cream on an areas that looked very dry.Â I kept bandaids on the wost looking spots. Took about 2 weeks but its all healed up on both of them now.
