A Little Bit of Hillmom

voice opinions and vent frustrations

I'm starting to notice a bigger change in the papules. However, to be honest I'm getting impatient! I don't know why. It will take time for them to heal regardless of treatment. Especially, when you see a photo of them at the microscopic level. It is amazing how deep this infection runs into the dermis. That is what keeps my urge to pop them under control. And OH do I just want to prematurely rupture the little buggers. To be fair, I'm a chronic zit popper. Ask my husband, I pop his too! However, to prematurely rupture them, would lead to large scars. 

Day 2 (Saturday) the treatment went as normal (mixture applied twice a day). However on day 3 (Sunday) Hayley had a bath a few hrs after applying the morning treatment. I decided to reapply after her bath making 3 applications on that day.

Today (day 4, Monday) I have mixed up another natural MC topical treatment based on the one, I got over the phone with Dr. Mena on Friday. 

MC Topical Treatment #2

1 Table spoon extra virgin coconut oil

5 drops lavender oil

8 drops tea tree oil

8 drops oregano oil

I plan to use MCTT #1 morning and night then apply MCTT #2 about mid day for the rest of the treatment period (until gone). Here is how those papules are healing day 2-4 =-)

^This is an evolving papule on her chest. Sorry my photos are not consistent quality. However, if yo look close the HARD center is beginning to work its way out.

^ You can see larger change, with this large papule on her neck. The hard center is working its way out of the papule.

For an even better view of healing check these out:

^ day 1 vs day 4: Once again sorry for the quality inconsistency. However, by looking close, you can see the center of that second photo the center is wider allowing more of the hard piece to come out of the papule.

^ This show some amazing difference. Day 0 vs Day 4!

Sep. 24, 2012 at 7:49 PM My Husband has Molluscum which started as a few little ones then he popped them, and man they took off all over his body. Went to the Dermatoligist and they just quickly and easly removed them one by one, about 20 of them and all a sudden they are gone!!! Though he has a few more that they doctor said will be growing in, which they did, that now need to me removed but my point being it was so quick, painless and easy with no scars. A child may be a little harder to remove them from but if you are an adult and get these, well then just go to the doc and BAM!!! They are gone =)

Hi, I am new to cafe mom and my 4 year old has had MC for 2 years, I was told my a chiropractor who had two daughters with MC to just use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil by ingesting it and using it topically, but I see you havea  certain mixture you use, what does mixture #1 consist of?
