Molluscum and stomach antacids

11/21/2006

Question:

I have heard from a resident doctor tht mollescum contagioso can now be cured by a stomach antacid rather than burning them off. Could you please tell me what stomach antacid would work?

Answer:

I have not heard of such a thing. The resident must be aware of research (or folklore) that has not yet been published. Please let us know if you find out, I would be very interested in this for my patients.
