Question by FEELGOODTOO: My 12 year old boy has molluscum contagiosum. I thought only small children had this.?
He is getting more and more. They started on his leg and now they are spreading upwards to his body. They erupt into a big sort of boil. He is very concious about them. Can you tell me what I can do to help clear them up. He has had them for about 1 year now.
