After applying to three – five bumps, wet the spatula with MolluDab® again. Allow the solution to dry on the bumps. Apply MolluDab® twice daily (morning and evening).

3. End of use

As soon as inflammation appears (recognisable by redness that lasts for 12 hours or more) stop using the product because it indicates that a molluscum bump is healing.

Stop using MolluDab® after 14 days, even if no inflammation is apparent and consult your doctor for further advice.

4. Wait for the molluscum lesions to heal

The inflammation indicates that your body is fighting the molluscum bumps. Now it’s time to be patient and wait for the molluscum bumps to heal. Once inflamed, healing usually takes between one and four weeks.
