This young boy was diagnosed by Dr. Signore with MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM, a common viral skin infection. Molluscum contagiosum can be spread from child to child through skin to skin contact. This skin infection was present on the BACK OF THE KNEES for six months and it had also spread to the ANKLE and BACK. He and his parent chose to begin homeopathic medicine, as they wanted to avoid painful surgical or freezing therapies.
This photo shows the same young boy, as seen above. His MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM on the BACK OF HIS KNEES, back,and ankle are ALL CLEAR. Over a period of 7 months, Dr. Signore treated him with individually selected natural homeopathic remedies. His MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM infection rapidly began to clear once Dr. Signore began a mineral remedy, which is derived from natural sea salt.
Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection commonly seen in children and young adults. As you can guess by the name "contagiosum", this condition is contagious and it is spread to others by skin-to-skin contact. Molluscum contagiosum is also seen in high school wrestlers. Molluscum contagiosum can occur on the face, eyelids, arms, legs, and trunk. Sometimes, molluscum can be quite stubborn to treat.
In Dr. Signore's dermatology office, molluscum contagiosum can be treated with imiquimod cream (Aldara Cream, Zyclara Cream), liquid nitrogen (freezing), surgical curettage, or classical homeopathic medicine depending on patient preference. The patient photos seen above and below were cases treated by Dr. Signore using natural homeopathic medicines.
Homeopathic medicine can be a good choice for young children who are fearful of painful precedures, such as surgery or freezing, as homeopathic medicine is painless and easy to administer. Homeopathic medicine can also be a good choice for childrens' molluscum contagiosum in the underarm (armpit) area, because it doesn't cause inflammation and irritation in the underarm as can Aldara Cream (imiquimod). Homeopathic medicines are taken by mouth, usually twice a day, and are pleasant tasting dissolvable pellets. These photos illustrate how homeopathic medicine can be a useful and effective natural treatment for molluscum contagiosum:
This young child had MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM, a viral skin infection, on her neck and shoulder for the past four months. Her parents had applied prescription imiquimod cream, but it irritated her skin and it did not help much. She was fearful of painful surgical procedures, so she and her parents decided to try CLASSICAL HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE. Over the next four months, Dr. Signore prescribed two separate homeopathic remedies, taken by mouth, which matched her physical and emotional traits the closest.
This is the same child after taking her individualized homeopathic remedies by mouth for approximately four months. You can see that her MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM are COMPLETELY GONE. This child was very happy that she did not have to undergo a painful surgical procedure to remove her molluscum contagiosum. She has stopped taking the homeopathic remedy by mouth, but she will continue applying 14% glycolic acid lotion to help fade her postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.
This young person was treated at Dr. Signore's Tinley Park dermatology office because she had numerous MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM on the LATERAL THIGH for two months. After a detailed interview, Dr. Signore selected her constitutional homeopathic medicine, which was derived from the Pasque Flower.
The above photo shows Dr. Signore's same patient, EIGHT WEEKS after beginning her homeopathic remedy derived from the Pasque Flower. Her MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM on the LATERAL THIGH are ALL CLEAR.
This child was diagnosed with MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM on his UPPER ARM by Dr. Signore. This viral infection was present for over three months. In addition, he also had atopic eczema, an itchy dry skin condition. His mother chose classical homeopathic medicine. Dr. Signore asked him a lot of questions to help determine what his homeopathic constitutional type was. Based on the patient's individual physical, emotional, and emotional characteristics, Dr. Signore prescribed his CONSTITUTIONAL HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY , which in his case was derived from a calcium-containing mineral. Classical homeopathic medicine takes into consideration each patient's UNIQUE TRAITS in order to find the person's correct remedy. So, two patients with MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM might each require a DIFFERENT remedy even though they have the SAME skin disease.
This photo shows the same young boy FOUR WEEKS LATER after Dr. Signore prescribed his CONSTITUTIONAL HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY, derived from a calcium-containing mineral. You can see that his MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM on his UPPER ARM are ALL CLEAR. Interestingly, his ATOPIC ECZEMA began to clear up and his father observed that his skin was MUCH LESS ITCHY. Therefore, we continued his homeopathic remedy for four more weeks, and then we stopped his medicine. Sometimes, OTHER MEDICAL PROBLEMS MAY IMPROVE when a person with skin diseases is treated with CLASSICAL HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE.
This young patient came to Dr. Signore's dermatology office because she had an eruption AROUND THE MOUTH for the past one year. These were not acne pimples - Dr. Signore diagnosed a viral imfection known as MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM. The patient and her mother chose homeopathic medicine. Over the next three months, Dr. Signore prescribed three different homeopathic medicines. When she began the third remedy, which was her CONSTITUTIONAL HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY, her molluscum began to fade away very nicely (see photo BELOW).
This is the same patient, as seen in the above photo, TWELVE WEEKS LATER. You can see her MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM AROUND THE MOUTH are ALL CLEAR, after taking her constitutional homeopathic remedy.
