Wheatgrass for Molluscum Contagiosum
Is Molluscum Contagiosum?
Molluscum contagiosum is caused by a virus that is highly
contagious. It causes small, itchy raised spots on the
skin, predominantly in infants and young children who
infect each other by direct contact. Although not in
any way dangerous, it can be quite unsightful and distressing
to both child and parents. Sometimes the child is banned
from public bathing areas because of it.
How Can I Get Rid Of It?
Traditionally, there has been little in the way of effective
treatments available, and, being a general practitioner,
for many years I told parents there was nothing that
could help eliminate the unsightly spots. Eventually
they would disappear, but it could take a year or two.
How wrong I was. One of my own children contracted the
virus and more as an afterthought, not expecting it
to work, applied the wheatgrass cream daily to the lesions.
To my surprise, in about three weeks, they had completely
Now, the collective experience of my and other therapists'
patients plus hundreds of people around the world who
have reported successful eradication of molluscum with
wheatgrass shows that it can take anywhere between two
weeks and three to four months for the spots to disappear.
We know that because of its very high safety of use
in infants and children and treatment failures are rare,
it pays to persevere with wheatgrass.
Because it contains a higher concentration of wheatgrass
extract than the wheatgrass cream, one would expect
the spray to be more effective. It is certainly more
economical. However, responses vary, so try twice daily
application of either formulation and try and be patient.
So far I have had no treatment failures using wheatgrass
