 my son gotten this about three years ago..he has a horrible immune system he has severe allergies and eczema..i had him in for treatment when the first year he gotten this..and after they used that juice on him and he was in pain and cried for two weeks i vowed to never do it again..just let it run its course..i don't even notice them anymore you can't really see them..well my daughter went to to have surgery on her eye b/c the doctors thought it was a chalazion and he cut it off and had it tested and it came back today as molluscum contagiosum..I was wondering how long does it take to run its course?? seems as my son is having a hard time getting rid of it and now my one year old has it and i've tried everything to avoid her getting it..i just read that acne medicine will help in severe cases...my doc gave me tretinoin for my acne awhile ago..its cleared up and this is exactly what they give MCV ppl..what are some over the counter things i can use? i need to find something that helps with his immune system as well..the daily vitamins don't seem to work ..make his stool to hard for him to go..i have to keep both my kids out of the water and cooled off this summer and its going to be so hard!!

any ideas? i would be grateful! thanks..

i had this when i was a teen.  my doc said it was probably cuz i was in such close contact with a ton of little kids (i babysat all the time).  i dont know about them "running their course"....my doc froze them off and they never came back.  here is some more info if you need it:
