~ Food Has Power ~
Hello, I am in a terrible state of distress after 8 long months of dealing with a viral infection called Molloscum Contagiosum. It is a pox virus and it looks just like a circular wart with a white core in the middle. It can have several stages of growth and size so depending on which stage it can look exactly like a zit. I've seen 4 doctors and a dermatologist and the general consensus in the medical field is "Wait it out"
It's terrible. It's driving me crazy. I have probably a hundred spots and they interrupt my daily life in such a profound way I would do anything to rid myself of them. I can't be active physically at all because moisture and sweat create an environment for them to spread, I can't be sexually active because then my girlfriend may contract the virus, I can't really go out at all because it can be spread from touching things that the virus has come into contact with. It's so awful I've spent all summer indoors doing nothing. It's very demanding, hours a day apply the latest remedy in hopes it will work. Showering twice a day or more, washing laundry 3-4 times a week to avoid spreading the virus and when I finally destroy a few of the spots I only discover more that it has spread to. Once the body clears the virus it is gone for good. The internet says you can be reinfected by several different sources but I've heard from one doctor and one dermatologist that you become immune after the body destroys the virus. This gives me hope but it is taking it's toll on me mentally and physically I am in so much distress. Please, if you know of any remedy to work I need to know how to remove these things.
I've heard several people have benefited from using the following, individually.
raw apple cider vinegar on a band-aid applied every few hours.
bettle juice (not sure of source though!)
duct tape over area and remove it daily, reapply
The most effective seems to be a combination of tea tree oil and iodine solution (see link)
Epsom slat baths could help
high doses vit C
homeopathic Thuja 200c

I think I would try the following, potentially:

P.S. and when all else fails, I try nigella sativa, kefir, coconut oil topically (individually)
