    My Experience with Molluscum Contagiosum by Karen Swann

    My seven year old son was told he had Molluscum contagiosum by the doctor, but they said to leave it alone and it will disappear eventually, refusing to prescribe anything for it. By the time I discovered MolluDab, he had been suffering for about 3 months after contracting it from a friend’s daughter.

    Conditions you never knew about until you had children by Alice Langley

    When I was expecting my first child I read every pregnancy book I could get my hands on. I knew, almost to the day, what should be happening to me and why, could tell you at any given week of pregnancy what size the baby would be and could sort a Braxton hicks from the real thing in a heartbeat.

    Locker Room Conditions by Mummy Blogger

    Any parent who’s ever taken their kids to football practice, swimming lessons or any after school sport will understand the dread of the locker room. All the moisture and warmth of wet towels and congregating bodies provide the perfect storm for passing on the very nasties we try to protect our kids from.

    My Experience with Molluscum Contagiosum by Kirsten Collin

    My 11 year old daughter developed Molluscum contagiosum in January but we didn’t know what it was. I had never heard of the condition and it developed at the same time as a throat infection. Our GP diagnosed it as Molluscum so I did some research into the condition. As an 11 year old, she was quite distressed about the condition and refused to wear vest tops and didn’t want to go swimming. I was worried about it spreading but luckily it remained just on her back – mainly on the right hand side.

    My Experience with Molluscum Contagiosum by Karen Woods

    My son Mitchell is two and a half years old and he contracted Molluscum Contagiosum (MC) about five months ago. The GP identified it as MC straight away and recommended that we do nothing apart from not share towels and baths to avoid passing on to others. They said it would go away on its own in six months to one year.

    Molluscum contagiosum by Dr Sarah Brewer

    Molluscum contagiosum is far less harmful than it sounds. Essentially, this tongue-twister is a viral skin condition – a bit like warts - that forms round, firm, blister-like lumps with a characteristic central dimple, or white head. These vary in size from two to five millimetres in diameter (a pinhead to a petit pois pea) and are usually pink or whitish in colour. Sometimes, only a single lump is present, but usually they form in clusters of up to 20 (occasionally more). They can appear on the face, neck, hands and arms. They particularly like the warm, cosy environment of the armpits where I’ve found them lurking, unexpectedly, during routine check-ups.

    My Experience by Tony Mottram

    ​My daughter is five years old and she had been suffering with Molluscum Contagiosum (MC) for over two years. During that time, we had to take her to the GP at least six times as the condition worsened and was causing her great discomfort. She was also becoming more frustrated as the condition became itchy and she would constantly scratch. ​

    MolluDab: My experience- - by Helen Jones, mum of two from Manchester

    Browsing through the Daily Mail Online over my morning coffee, one article’s headline in particular caught my eye; “When ‘chickenpox’ isn’t what it seems and leads to years of pain”. Intrigued I clicked on and began to read and there, within that article was the answer to the question I’d been looking for the past seven months.

    Diagnosis and treatment of molluscum contagiosum by Dr Rob Hicks

    Most people have heard of warts and chickenpox but with Molluscum contagiosum it’s usually a different matter. Mention this mouthful of a name and a person’s face is often filled with perplexed fear. After all, the name Molluscum contagiosum makes the condition sound quite scary, but thankfully this couldn’t be further from the truth.
