Children can have molluscum for a long time. Research undertaken by Johns Hopkins University Baltimore found 50% of children have molluscum for at least one year.9
A separate study of molluscum contagiosum in children and infants by Cardiff University Wales found:
- the average length of molluscum infection is 13 months;
- 30% of children suffer for 18 months;
- 13% still have unresolved molluscum lesions at 24 months; and
- molluscum infection is transmitted to other children in 41% of families.8
Several medical studies indicate that children prone to atopic dermatitis and eczema have more molluscum lesions that last longer.4,13 Other studies have shown an association with swimming and bath sharing and molluscum contagiosum.10,11,12
How ever your child caught the molluscum virus, there is no need to wait it out.

Use Mollenol on the torso, legs and arms of children 4 years and older and Mollenol Sensitive for infants up to 4 years and on the face and genital area for all ages.
If your child only has a few molluscum bumps get working quickly to stop the spread. The spread of molluscum, the viral contagion, increases the number of bumps and lesions, and often the length of time until resolution. Friends and family become more likely to be infected and develop molluscum.
Mollenol and Mollenol Sensitive are approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration and are made to the highest standards in quality certified manufacturing facilities from all natural ingredients.
Testimonial: "We used Mollenol Sensitive on our daughter ... now my little girl is free of all issues she had. Very happy to recommend this product to others. We have over half a bottle left so we think this is also great value for money as well as truly working where other lotions didn't." Paul (Sydney, Australia)*
Testimonial: "We were so pleased a friend recommended Mollenol when our 6 year old developed moderate molluscum contagiosum. Results overnight with obvious healing & no harsh ingredients. Resolved within 3 weeks. Our 3 year old then came out in 2-3 spots & the Mollenol nipped it in the bud super quick, hers completely resolved within days. Our GP was so impressed & had not heard of the product before, she looked it up and given it's TGA approved she made a note to inform her colleagues of the product as she had never seen such effective results from a topical treatment. Thank you Mollenol!" (Janette, Bristol)*
