Warts all over my toddle

My 3 year old little boy has got warts from his shoulder into his neck and all over his tummy, what is the cause of this fungus and what can I do to get rid of them? Please help.

These are not warts but probably little blisters caused by a viral skin condition called Molluscum. The virus is very catchy and can infect other children. There is no easy cure and in most cases the condition simply clears by itself after 6 to 18 months.

Hello Chan, A substance that is excellent for any virus or bacteria is Coloidal Silver. I got rid of a wart on my sons knee with this. What does present a problem is that there are many as usually I cover the problem with cotton wool soaked in Coloidal Silver with a plaster making sure it is closed all over so the cotton wool stays wet for as long as possible. I do this twice a day - more if I can. Maybe treat a couple at a time and the rest just put Coloidal Silver on without a plaster. Dab it on all the others. This stuff is brilliant and available at Dischem.
