Customer Question

My one year son has/molluscum-contagious he has about 7 total from head to toe. I have been reading about homeopathic treatments using apple cider to soak the area and then pop the Lesion. I was wondering if it was safe

Hello
It is safe but not generally effective.
It is also not homeopathic, although natural.
Homeopathic treatment involves the use of a single, high dilution remedy, where a substance is diluted over and over again according to homeopathic methods.
The single remedy that fits him: musculosum, personality, constitution, etc. is given. If it is the correct remedy it stimulates the body itself to cure the condition.
You can find a reasonable list of classical homeopaths..you want only a classical homeopath with experience, here.
