Children can have molluscum for a long time

Molluscum contagiosum treatment for babies and children.

Scientific research has found 50% of children have molluscum for at least one year.9 A separate study of molluscum contagiosum in children and infants 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 and that use of topical corticosteroids or immunomodulators and actually provide a favorable environment for molluscum contagiosum infection.4,1320 Other studies have shown an association with swimming and bath sharing and molluscum.10,11,12

Mollenol Sensitive

Use Mollenol Sensitive for children 2 to 7 years. Mollenol Sensitive should also be used on sensitive areas (face, under arms, back of knees, and private parts) of children and adults. Mollenol standard is for children 8 years and above for general application.

Mollenol Patches

Apply Mollenol Hydrocolloid Patches to pus filled bumps to absorb the pus and limited the spread.

Mollenol Patches are infused with tea tree and clove and can be used in conjunction with Mollenol Sensitive or alone. 

Mollenol Patches can be used for all ages including children under 2 years old (see our Infants section).

Get working quickly

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 the length of time until resolution. Friends and family become more likely to be infected with molluscum.

TestimonialWe were so pleased a friend recommended Mollenol Sensitive when our 6 year old developed  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 Sensitive nipped it in the bud super quick, hers completely resolved within days. Our GP was so impressed ... 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!
