Anyone out there? Can you please help me?

Nathaniel has had what looked like fluid-like red bumps on his lower back from the time he was born and they stayed the same….never changed. But at the end of December I noticed what looked to be a heat rash under his pits….this was a week before admitted for Pneumonia. I figured it was probably a heat rash from the fever. Since then, it has spread to his upper back and neck. I’ve been using a triple antibiotc ointment mixed w/steroid and sometimes it begins to look better, but then all of a sudden he has more. I know that it is a form of chickenpox and can take anywhere from 2 months to 4 years to completely clear up. Has anyone ever had to deal with this, and if so, what was used to clear it up? I feel so bad for him because I know it bothers him. He’s constantly trying to scratch, but I can’t always keep his hands away 🙁 and I worry because I know that is what causes the spreading. Please help! Anyone.

    Sabrina had molluscum contagiosum for about a year before it cleared up. It mainly affected her scalp and she had some on her forehead and back from time to time. We found that giving her head a rinse with disinfectant seemed to really help. Once we started doing that they began clearing up. But they are such a pain! We had some nasty infections too.

    I actually have it on my arm. Dont keep putting riple antiiotic on it, it irritates it which is why it spread. I went to my doctor after a year and he prescribed me with Betamethasone Dipropionate. My dr also said that hydrogen peroxide, triple antibiotic, and neoporin does not help but that it irritates the skin infected with mollesca. Hope this helps!
