Well, if you're here you are probably frantically looking for answers, I knew I was when I first found I had MC. It isn't a fun thing to have, so I understand what you might be feeling, but rest assured it can be managed. Keep your spirits up, be optimistic about a good outcome, and concentrate on getting rid of it!

I hope these few ideas help. I recommend you read the whole thing (start at the bottom of the page and work up)- a holistic approach will be far more successful.

Some key facts from my reading

  • MC is a virus
  • It is ubiquitous (common), benign (not going to kill or seriously injure you) and self limiting (it will go away on it's own).
  • It is highly contagious
  • It is common in children
  • In adults it is often sexually transmitted
  • The actual lumps contain the virus - it doesn't get into your blood or lymph system.
  • No bumps = not contagious (well as far as I can tell, not 100% confident on that one yet)
  • Touching the bumps is the method of cross infection
  • The disease will auto-inoculate - eg a bump on the inside of the thigh (picked up from a bike seat at the gym for example) could transfer to the other leg via direct contact.
  • The bodies immune system will eventually get rid of it on it's own but it can take 6 months or more.

Well if your reading this for comforte like i am because its 4 in the morning and you cant sleep because the lower half of your body is coverd in soggy cottan balls and duct tape and you smell like a middle schoole science project here is some good reading.

Dont use creames that have to be rubbed in, it will spread it.

Aldara works in some areas but can get rubbed off and wont work for all

Im trying sylaic acid because it is actually a terminal residue of oligosaccharides present in the glycoproteins and glycolipids of the cell membrane and used to communicate between the cell and outside mollecules. Viruses such as influenva, and the human papiloma ( warts), target salic acid and bind to them with a protein called hemagglutinin ( in influenza not sure about hpv) this causes the cell to let the viruses in and once inside influenza uses neuraminidase to break the linkage freeing the virus to infect the cell.

Thus using silic acid will hopefully cause the viruse to bind to this instead of the cell based on abondance of the applied silaic acid. Im also going to cover in duct tape to prevent spreading and it also has sailic acid in it, meh the more the marier. Rip off the duct tape, rip off the virus. Or take a pair of tweezerz and h2o2 to em
