Question by Paris: At home wart freezing kits for e molluscum contagiosum? And apple cider vinegar?
I have e molluscum contagiosum on my thighs and a bit on my butt. I plan on soaking a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar and putting a bandaid over it onto the MC.

Then leaving that there for a bit and going with an at home wart freezing kit. Would this help?
Srry for the e next to molluscum contagiosum. I copy pasted the spelling must have caught the previous letter.

I don’t think the apple cider vinegar will work. You need to take a more aggressive approach with it.

Step 1 Salicylic acid, which can be purchased at your local drugstore, is effective in treating molluscum contagiosum. Apply several times daily over the course of several weeks. If the bumps continue, stop treatment and move onto Step 2.

Step 2 Betadine surgical scrub, which can be purchased online or at a medical-supply store, is a strong sterilizing soap. Scrub the affected areas for five to 10 minutes daily. If the molluscum contagiosum persists after a few weeks, try Step 3.

Step 3 Sterilize the lesions with an alcohol swab. With a sterilized needle, slice open the top of the bumps, one at a time. Swab around the inside of the lesion with a fresh alcohol swab, making sure to remove any liquid that is inside. Apply Neosporin to prevent infection.

Step 4 If the molluscum contagiosum remains, see a doctor as soon as possible.
