Abstract

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a benign skin condition having peculiar pearly white or pink lesions. This is considered to be a very contagious disease, common in children of low socioeconomic group. Conventionally, local removal of lesions is the primary choice of treatment, commonly cryotherapy. This is a report of three cases suffering from MC for a variable period, treated with individualised homoeopathic treatment. The rationale of this report reflects the effective management of such cases with homoeopathy.
