Anyone have experience with Muloscum in a toddler?

My son has muloscum, probably picked up from son kid at a park or daycare. His pediatrician says to just let it be since it doesn't bother him and that it would go away eventually.

Anyone else have experience with this, how long did it take to finally go away? Did you do any treatment for it?

My son is 3 1/2 by the way.

  • My son was 3 when he picked that up from preschool. They were taking over his hands so we did go to the dermatologist, and it took a few months to get it all gone. It sucked :(

    Good luck to you and you son :)

  • I worked for a dermatologist and she would freeze the warts every 2 weeks or so until they were gone. It's still contagious.

  • I read that, my sons are really small and close to the skin so I don't know if we really have to freeze them. Do you know how long on average it took to go away?

  • Without freezing them it can last months.
