Homeopathic Medicines for Molluscum Contagiosum

What is molluscum contagiosum?

Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes small, painless, round, flesh coloured bumps on the skin. Molluscum contagiosum is very common among children aged 1 to 10 years, but can affect adults as well. Molluscum contagiosum is caused by pox virus called the molluscum contagiosum virus. It remains contagious until eruptions are gone.

How does molluscum contagiosum spread?

Molluscum contagiosum spreads via direct skin-to-skin contact, touching a surface or object contaminated with pox virus such as toys, towels, clothes. Molluscum contagiosum also spreads through sexual contact with a person infected with molluscum contagiosum virus. People with a weak immune system are at a higher risk of acquiring molluscum contagiosum infection.

Symptoms of molluscum contagiosum

The eruptions in molluscum contagiosum are small, round, painless, pearly, flesh coloured papules. The papules have a dimple in the centre. The eruption could be between 1mm and 5mm in diameter. The most common site for molluscum contagiosum eruptions are the face, armpit, neck, arms and hands. In adults, the genitals, lower abdomen and inner thighs are involved if the infection is sexually transmitted. Itching and irritation in eruptions may be present. Scratching the eruptions leads to spread of virus to the nearby skin. Secondary bacterial infection may arise in the eruptions. The eruption usually disappears within 6 to 18 months. However, in immuno suppressed persons, the lesions may last as long as 4 to 5 years.

Homeopathic Treatment of Molluscum Contagiosum

Homeopathic medicines are very successful in treating viral skin infections, including molluscum contagiosum. Homeopathic medicines follow a very safe, mild and gentle approach to treat molluscum contagiosum. They hasten recovery and ensure good treatment. A major advantage of taking Homeopathic medicines in molluscum contagiosum is that they are curative rather than suppressive in nature. In addition to this, they are safe for use and have no related side effects. The most prominently indicated Homeopathic medicines for treating molluscum contagiosum are Merc Sol, Natrum Mur, Silicea, Sulphur, Kali Iodatum and Thuja Occidentalis. The most appropriate Homeopathic medicine is selected based on a detailed study and analysis of symptoms in each case.
