I know that you are desperate to find a cure for molluscum contagiosum. Trust me I have been there. My son had them for almost 2 years. They seemed to be getting worse with the swelling, redness and weeping. I took him to a dermatologist and they said the best thing to do is to leave them alone. He said that the symptoms did not indicate infection but that his body was finally building immunity and fighting off the mc virus. My son was very embarassed but we took the doctors advice. Not 3 months later they started going away one by one. The virus has left some small scarring but I believe that the scarring would be much worse if we tried to fight them from the outside in.
I would suggest that you see a dermatologist. They do have other options that are more aggresive than just waiting it out, but seek advice from a doctor. Laser was never mentioned as an alternative but some topical creams were.
