Dab a small amount of Mollenol twice a day directly on molluscum bumps using a q-tip (cotton bud) or your fingers. Mollenol is readily applied to bare and hairy skin surfaces.
After several applications of Mollenol the molluscum lesions should inflame and reduce in size. The molluscum head may scab over.
Mollenol has been formulated to control molluscum contagiosum in adults and children over 4 years old. While Mollenol Sensitive should be used for children under 4 years and for molluscum on the genitals and face of older children and adults.

Large molluscum bumps can look inflamed and ugly but do not burst or pierce them. Instead dab a little Mollenol on each molluscum bump and, if you wish, use an adhesive bandage to cover and contain the pus. The molluscum pus carries the contagious virus which spreads the skin disease.
Molluscum often appears in clusters on the torso, thighs or elsewhere. These clusters may have larger molluscum lesions surrounded by very small, pin-sized bumps. The small bumps are early stage molluscum.
Apply a thin smear of Mollenol to the molluscum cluster. Do not rub in. Keep covered with clothing or a large adhesive bandage if possible.
Treat molluscum on the face with Mollenol Sensitive twice a day. Dab a little Mollenol Sensitive on individual molluscum bumps. Do not rub in. Be careful to avoid the eyes.
Mollenol Sensitive is ideal for treatment of molluscum on the genitals. Dab a very small amount to one molluscum bump at a time using a q-tip. Ensure minimum spread to surrounding area. Do not wax or shave pubic hair while you have molluscum. This is likely to spread the infection widely. It is also best not to engage in sexual activity when molluscum is present.
Molluscum can lodge under the hair on the head, pubic hair and under armpit hair. Mollenol or Mollenol Sensitive can be applied frequently to molluscum bumps in these locations. Mollenol lotion is designed for hairy places.
People who suffer from eczema often get more molluscum lesions that last longer and eczema, dermatitis, and dry skin frequently appear with molluscum. Mollenol will soothe and moisturise the skin, reduce itching, and give relief to dermal inflammation associated with molluscum infection and atopic skin conditions. This minimizes scratching and limits the spread of the molluscum infection.
If molluscum is not treated quickly it can become widespread covering large sections of the body with many lesions in various stages of growth. The best approach is to treat the worst infected areas with Mollenol, working through the infection day by day. Practice good hygiene, use towels only once, use a hair dryer to thoroughly dry skin, and cover pus head molluscum.
An apple cider vinegar wash can be helpful when molluscum infection is widespread. Wash over infected skin with apple cider vinegar daily, dry off, apply Mollenol.
Molluscum is very contagious. It can be contracted directly from an infected person or indirectly from objects. You can spread the molluscum virus across your own body as well as to other people. Wash your hands often. Change pillows and clothes more frequently and bath towels daily. Don't use soap bars, use liquid soap instead. Don't shave or wax molluscum and limit physical contact with molluscum infected areas. Don't scratch bumps and cover any pus head molluscum with adhesive bandage or clothing. Don't share towels, toys or clothing.
