Our expert says:
If your son does have molluscum contagiosum, it is important to consult your doctor, as scratching might lead to a secondary bacterial infection that will have to be treated with antibiotics. I do not advise that you start any treatment before a visit to your doctor, as a proper diagnosis will have to be made, before treatment can be advised. If treated incorrectly, it can aggrevate.
I apologise for not being of much assistance but it is difficult to give advice on a skin condition, as I am unable to examine the area.
