Introduction

There are a variety of options when it comes to eliminating the molluscum contagiosum virus and its accompanying bumps.

Aside from the two extremes of "waiting it out" and having a minor operation to remove them, there are many at-home remedies and over-the-counter products that can be used. To learn more about all of these different options, check out our Molluscum Contagiosum Treatment Guide.

One of those at-home remedies that people often try to treat molluscum contagiosum with is iodine. Aside from molluscum contagiosum, iodine is used for a variety of issues. As a natural antiseptic, it can be used to disinfect things, both in and on the body as well as in other things such as water.

This review will take a look at how people use iodine to treat molluscum contagiosum and how effective it is.

What is in Iodine?

Iodine is a naturally occurring element that is used for a variety of purposes when used in solution. This solution is often called tincture of iodine and generally contains iodine combined with potassium iodide or sodium iodide, and dissolved with ethanol or water. The iodine solution we recommend contains the following ingredients:

Our Recommended Iodine Solution's Ingredients

  • Iodine
  • Potassium Iodide
  • Ethanol
  • Note: this is solution is a 5% iodine solution

Iodine works by killing bacteria and viruses that commonly affect the body. In the case of molluscum contagiosum, iodine solution may kill the virus and the accompanying papules (check below for more about iodine's effectiveness). 

Who Can Safely Use Iodine for Molluscum Contagiosum?

Iodine is safe for the following people and areas:

  • Children
  • Adults
  • On the external body including genitals
  • On the face including the eyelids
  • DO NOT use internally (if gets in eyes, simply rinse with water)

How to Use Iodine for Treating Molluscum Contagiosum

iodine-molluscum-contagiosum-treatment

There are a variety of ways to use an iodine solution to treat molluscum contagiosum. We recommend using it in conjunction with another treatment, but you can try using it as a standalone treatment as well. In either case, we recommend adhering to the following instructions: 

  • Apply iodine solution to each lesion
  • Allow solution to dry
  • Repeat 2-3 times a day until lesions are all cleared up
  • Note: Do not clean or remove cream in between applications

Using iodine is very simple. Just put the solution on a few times a day and you're done - there is no need to wash it off in between applications. When using with another product, you can apply the iodine before or after the product depending what it is. If using iodine along with another product, be sure to consult with a doctor to ensure there are no adverse interactions.

How Effective is Iodine at Treating Molluscum Contagiosum?

As a standalone treatment for molluscum contagiosum, iodine is not your best option.

Most people find little to no success when using iodine tincture as a treatment. It is not strong enough to cause much of a difference.

Some people have seen a decrease in spreading or a decrease in the amount of papules, but this is may be the body's natural response doing work as opposed to the iodine. 

Iodine solution is better off as an add-on to another treatment, as explained above. You may find it works well at cleaning the skin before applying other treatments.​

If you are looking for a way to kill your molluscum contagiosum and the associated papules, we recommend looking at Conzerol, ZymaDerm, or Terrasil

Are There Any Side-Effects Associated With Iodine?

One benefit of iodine is that there are typically never any adverse side-effects.

It is a very gentle agent and does not typically cause any skin irritation, inflammation, or scarring.

Because iodine has a reddish/brownish color, you may notice a slight tinting of the skin after applying it. This can easily be washed off, however, and will not cause any permanent change.

Though it is very unlikely, if your skin becomes irritated from using iodine, you should wash it off as soon as possible and discontinue use. It may be in your best interest to contact your doctor as well. 

Final Thoughts

Iodine solutions are typically ineffective at treating molluscum contagiosum by themselves. It may help slow spreading when used in conjunction with other treatments, but we do not recommend using it alone. It is your best interest to look elsewhere to eliminate your molluscum contagiosum.

Salicylic Acid for Molluscum Contagiosum Review

salicylic-acid-review-molluscum-contagiosum
salicylic-acid-molluscum-contagiosum

Introduction

Treatments for molluscum contagiosum range from over-the-counter products designed specifically for the virus to everyday, at-home products that are commonly found in a family's medicine cabinet. With all of the different treatments for molluscum contagiosum, how do you decide what is best for you? 

Well, a good place to start is by comparing your different options. When I was struggling with molluscum contagiosum, I couldn't find a site that reviewed and analyzed the different treatments available, so I made one to help others like yourself!

This review will look at using salicylic acid to treat molluscum contagiosum. Salicylic acid is commonly used to treat acne, other types of warts, and dandruff - among many others.

If you have any questions, free free to contact us or check out our FAQ section. Note: all ratings are based on reviews and research of the products and treatments. Always consult with your doctor or dermatologist before starting any treatment.

What is Salicylic Acid?

Salicylic Acid is a solution that is used for a variety of purposes. The acidity of the solution is often able to reduce swelling and redness, unclog pores to allow skin issues to improve, and loosen dry or irritated skin. There are a few different types of salicylic acid-based treatments, so be sure to know what is in the one you select before using it.

The treatment we recommend is a salicylic acid skin peel. The ingredients are as follows.

Salicylic Acid Gel Peel Ingredients

  • Salicylic Acid (20%)
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Denatured Alcohol
  • Polyacrylamide
  • C13-14 Isoparaffin
  • Laureth 7

The acidity of the solution is supposed to burn the virus, killing it and preventing any further spreading. 

Who Can Safely Use Salicylic Acid for Molluscum Contagiosum?

Salicylic Acid is safe for the following people and areas:

  • Adults
  • Consult with a doctor before using on children
  • On the external body
  • DO NOT use internally

How to Use Salicylic Acid for Treating Molluscum Contagiosum

salicylic-acid-molluscum-contagiosum

The process of using the salicylic acid gel peel for treating molluscum contagiosum is not too complicated. The instructions are as follows:

  • Apply solution to lesions and let dry
  • Leave solution on for 10 to 30 minutes
  • Peel off gel and wash skin with water
  • Repeat 2-3 times a week as tolerated

The process of using the salicylic acid is a little more complicated than others that only require a simple application of a cream or solution. It is, however, still very simple and doesn't take more than a few minutes of time. Also, only a few applications a week are needed versus some other treatments that require a few a day.

How Effective is Salicylic Acid at Treating Molluscum Contagiosum?

At least one study has shown that salicylic acid gel peels can be successfully used to help clear molluscum contagiosum lesions in children. In short, 87.5% of patients in the salicylic acid gel peel group achieved positive results.

There are many reviews online of people who have found similar positive results. People have said that salicylic acid has not only slowed the spreading of the virus, but also has eliminated existing papules.

Other people have found some minor improvements from using salicylic acid based treatments, while others have noticed little to not difference.

​It is important to note that there are many different strengths and types of treatments that use salicylic acid. When looking at reviews and recommended treatments online, it is crucial to note what the actual solution that the person is using. 

Because of the variability in all of the salicylic acid treatments for molluscum contagiosum, it is difficult to predict a timeline of results.

Some people may see results in the first few treatments, while others may not notice results for a few weeks. In the aforementioned study, results were traced over 4 years.

Are there any Side-Effects Associated with Salicylic Acid?

Because salicylic acid is an acid, it may cause some discomfort and skin irritation.

Many users have reported redness and minor inflammation of the skin after treatment. Furthermore, the skin may be tender for a few hours or days after treatment. Though this is expected, if there is any extreme discomfort or irritation, contact a doctor immediately.

After the salicylic acid dries up, you may see a white residue left behind. This is common and should flake off within a day or two.

As with most treatments for molluscum contagiosum, following clearance of the lesions, there may be some scarring left behind. This is usually minor, however, and should fade in time.

Final Thoughts

Salicylic acid has proven to be effective for treating molluscum contagiosum in some cases. It may also be effective as a supplement to other treatments. Some people may not react well to it, however, so be sure to be careful if you do decide to use it.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Molluscum Contagiosum Review

apple-cider-vinegar-molluscum-contagiosum-review
apple cider vinegar molluscum contagiosum

Introduction

People have dealt with molluscum constagiosum for years. As with other minor skin diseases, moms and grandmoms everywhere have used natural, at-home remedies to treat the virus - for better or for worse. While some have proven successful, others have done nothing more than give sufferers a false sense of hope.

Out of all of the treatments for molluscum contagiosum, no one has truly set itself apart from the bunch. There are a few that have proven quite effective, such as Conzerol, but there have been a few alternative treatments that have also been successful for some people. These alternative treatments are often preferred over more harsh treatments, such as curettage and cryotherapy, or simply "waiting it out" - both which are commonly recommended by dermatologists.

This article will specifically look at using apple cider vinegar to treat molluscum contagiousm. Apple cider vinegar is widely used ​as an at-home, alternative treatment, and actually has been rumored to be used as early as 400 B.C. From being used as a facial toner to stopping bad breath to cleaning hair - apple cider vinegar is commonly used for a variety of problems, and it is one of the best at-home remedies for treating molluscum contagiosum.

If you have any questions, free free to contact us or check out our FAQ section. Note: all ratings are based on reviews and research of the products and treatments. Always consult with your doctor or dermatologist before starting any treatment.

What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar, ACV, is exactly what it sounds like: a vinegar made from apples and cider. It is packed with fiber and nutrients and, despite its strong stench and taste, can be extremely beneficial for a variety of things.

The acidity of the vinegar is what makes ACV effective at treating molluscum lesions, among everything else in it. The ACV that we recommend is organic and raw and is mixed with purified drinking water to create a 5% acidity.

Who Can Safely Use ACV for Molluscum Contagiosum?

Everyone reacts differently to ACV. For this reason, we cannot recommend that it be used on children. ACV often causes much more skin irritation and pain as compared to other treatments (even though this is one of the main reasons it is so effective). 

  • Adults
  • On the external body (be careful around genitals)

How to Use ACV for Treating Molluscum Contagiosum

apple cider vinegar molluscum contagiosum

There are a variety of approaches that have been used to use ACV to treat molluscum contagiosum. Though they do vary quite a bit, there is a general procedure that tends to be used. We recommend doing this at night and is as follows:

  • Apply ACV to a cotton ball soaking it
  • Place the cotton ball on a molluscum contagiosum lesion/lesions
  • Use athletic tape or a band aid to completely cover and secure the cotton ball onto the skin
  • Leave the cotton ball on for 8-16 hours, or until next application
  • Repeat as needed until the virus and papules are gone

This is one of the more complicated treatment processes out of all that we have reviewed. In addition, the ACV smell can be hard to get off of the hands and skin where it is applied, so you may have to wash your hands a good amount after applying the treatment.

Based on your reaction to the ACV and your success with it, you may have to tweak your treatment. ​Some people may find that they need a day or two off between treatments while others may find that more than one application a day works. No matter what you decide to go with, be sure to monitor your skin and carefully watch how you are reacting. It is possible to damage your skin using ACV, so be careful.

How Effective is ACV at Treating Molluscum Contagiosum?

In most cases, ACV will eventually kill some, if not all, or molluscum contagiosum lesions. It is often more dependent on how much the sufferer can deal with, as opposed to the effectiveness.

Many people have sworn by ACV for treating their molluscum contagiosum, stating that is completely killed the virus and eliminated all bumps. Others have seen some clearance but not a complete elimination. In addition, some see a clearance followed by the appearance of new lesions (though this is possible with any treatment). Finally, some people have seen no good results with ACV, or they weren't able to use the treatment long enough to see results.

After applying ACV overnight, you should initially see some skin irritation, often in the form of redness and some swelling. You will know if the treatment is working if eventually you see the center of the bump turns black. This means that the virus has been killed (at least in that one spot), and the bump should soon recede.

As mentioned, everyone reacts differently to ACV. Though many find success, you may not.

Are There Any Side-Effects Associated With Using ACV to Treat Molluscum Contagiosum?

As mentioned, using ACV may cause some significant discomfort and skin irritation. While this is to be expected to some extent, you should be aware that too much can cause permanent damage or unbearable pain.

Following the clearance of lesions, you may notice some skin discoloration or inflammation for longer periods of times as compared to other treatments. This, as well as the initial discomfort, are caused by the harshness and acidity of the ACV.

ACV is the most harsh of all of the common treatments for molluscum contagiosum. It is an acid, so this isn't too surprising, but it is important to know what to expect. If you are considering using ACV for your child's molluscum lesions, please be sure to consult with a doctor or dermatologist first.

Final Thoughts

Apple cider vinegar is a very effective treatment for molluscum contagiosum, though it also often comes with a "physical price tag". The accompanying pain and discomfort is often too much to handle, and is the reason why it is not rated as highly as other treatments. If you decide to give ACV a shot, our best recommendation is to start slow and be careful.

Tea Tree Oil for Molluscum Contagiosum Review

tea-tree-oil-review-molluscum-contagiosum-review
tea tree oil molluscum contagiosum

Introduction

There are countless treatments for molluscum contagiosum. From physical removal to freezing them off to apply topical solutions to kill the virus, the options are seemingly limitless. Despite all of these treatments, however, there is no sure-fire cure for the virus.

While many people have found success using over-the-counter treatments that contain multiple treatments, many others have been able to clear up the skin problem using a single product. Though the combinations are typically more effective, there are a few single ingredients that can produce results.

This review will go over one of the best single products you can use for treating molluscum contagiosum - tea tree oil.

If you have any questions, free free to contact us or check out our FAQ section. Note: all ratings are based on reviews and research of the products and treatments. Always consult with your doctor or dermatologist before starting any treatment.

What is Tea Tree Oil?

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, is an oil taken from the Australian plan Melaleuca alternifolia. Tea tree oil has been used for hundreds of years in Australia and is now popular throughout most of the world due to its natural antiseptic properties.

Aside from molluscum contagiosum, tea tree oil is used for a variety of things - such as cleaning cuts, fighting bad breath, as an ingredient in DIY deodorant, easing psoriasis, and much more.

The antiseptic properties of tea tree oil make it effective at killing bacteria, fungi, and viruses - such as molluscum contagiosum.

Who Can Safely Use Tea Tree Oil for Molluscum Contagiosum?

Tea tree oil is safe for the following people and areas:

  • Children
  • Adults
  • On the external body including genitals
  • On the face including the eyelids
  • DO NOT use internally (if gets in eyes, simply rinse with water)

How to Use Tea Tree Oil for Treating Molluscum Contagiosum

tea tree oil molluscum contagiosum

There are no specific instructions out there for using tea tree oil for treating molluscum contagiosum. Most users, however, follow something similar to the following:

  • Apply the oil to each lesion
  • Let the oil dry for at least 3 minutes
  • Repeat 2-3 times a day until lesions are all cleared up
  • Note: Do not clean or remove cream in between applications

If you decide to give tea tree oil a shot for treating your molluscum contagiosum, it is recommended that you experiment with the number of applications you use throughout the day. If you do not see results, consider increasing the number of applications. As always, stop use if your skin becomes irritated.

How Effective is Tea Tree Oil at Treating Molluscum Contagiosum?

Because tea tree oil has so many uses, it is difficult to find specific reviews for it just for treating molluscum contagiosum. In our search, however, we have found that it does not seem to be nearly as effective as over-the-counter products, such as Conzerol and ZymaDerm.

Some users have found that tea tree oil has helped stop or at least slow the spreading of their molluscum contagiosum. Others have even found that using tea tree oil has helped completely eliminate the virus, though this is not typical.

One reason why other products are more effective than tea tree oil alone is that many of them actually use tea tree oil as an ingredient! Though it may not be too effective alone, tea tree oil is great when used in combination with other ingredients.

Because of the lack of effectiveness, we recommend those with molluscum contagiosum either use tea tree oil in conjunction with other ingredients, or use a product that contains tea tree oil as an ingredient.

Are There Any Side-Effects Associated With Tea Tree Oil?

There are typically no side effects associated with using tea tree oil. It is a proven treatment for a variety of issues, and there are often no issues with using it.

Some users have found tea tree oil to be mildly irritating to the skin, however. In mot cases, this irritation was minor redness or sensitivity.

One thing that we have noticed about tea tree oil is that is has a very strong smell. People have different opinions on whether that smell is good or not, but it should be noted that it may be noticeable when you are using it - especially if the skin where you applied it to is not covered by clothing.

Final Thoughts

Tea tree oil is a great product that everyone should carry in his or her home. It has countless uses and is very diverse. Though it can definitely help, there are better treatments out there for molluscum contagiosum. At the very most, we recommend using tea tree oil in conjunction with other treatments or ingredients.

ZymaDerm Molluscum Contagiosum Review

zymaderm-review
zymaderm molluscum contagiosum

Introduction

There are a variety of options when it comes to treating molluscum contagiosum. They range from doing absolutely nothing and "waiting it out" to minor procedures performed by dermatologists. Too often, however, dermatologists only recommend one of these two extremes. There are options, however, for those who would prefer an at-home or over-the-counter remedy.

There are some products that people use that weren't designed specifically for treating molluscum contagiosum, such as apple cider vinegar and iodine. Alternatively, there are formulations created that were designed specifically with treating molluscum contagiosum in mind, such as Conzerol, Terrasil, and ZymaDerm - which this post will review.

If you have any questions, free free to contact us or check out our FAQ section. Note: all ratings are based on reviews and research of the products and treatments. Always consult with your doctor or dermatologist before starting any treatment.

What is in ZymaDerm?

As shown in the above image, ZymaDerm comes in a small vial with a dual screw-on lid/brush to apply the solution. ZymaDerm is FDA registered and only contains all natural ingredients. They are as follows.

ZymaDerm Ingredients

  • 5X Iodine HPUS
  • 5C Thuja Occidentalis HPUS
  • 5C Echinacea Agustifolia HPUS

All of these ingredients are natural and safe. As an plant-based and non-toxic solution, ZymaDerm proves as an effective treatment with little to no side effects. For more information about these ingredients, see the Supplemental Ingredient Information section below.

Who Can Safely Use ZymaDerm for Molluscum Contagiosum?

There are currently two published clinical trials demonstrating ZymaDerm's safety and effectiveness. Having these trials goes a long way to show the viability of the product for treating the virus. ZymaDerm is safe for the following people and areas:

  • Children 9 months or older
  • Adults
  • On the external body including genitals
  • On the face including the eyelids
  • DO NOT use internally

How to Use ZymaDerm for Treating Molluscum Contagiosum

Using ZymaDerm for treating molluscum contagiosum is very easy. Here is all you have to do:

  • Use the brush attached to the cap to apply a thin film of ZymaDerm to papules twice a day
  • Leave on between applications
  • Tip: For papules near the eye, use the dull end of a pin to precisely apply the ZymaDerm

Unlike some of the other treatments for molluscum contagiosum, ZymaDerm is very easy to apply. Whereas other treatments may require padding, taping, and many applications throughout the day, ZymaDerm simply requires two, quick applications with the included brush twice a day.

How Effective is ZymaDerm at Treating Molluscum Contagiosum?

ZymaDerm has a success rate of 91% according to its website. This is very high for molluscum contagiosum treatments, and is much higher than many of the others that we review. 

More than 500,000 children have already successfully cleared their molluscum contagiosum using ZymaDerm. This sets ZymaDerm as one of the most tested and proven treatments of all. 

ZymaDerm has a 4/5 star rating on Amazon from over 850 reviews. This too is one of the highest ratings of any of the products that we have reviewed.

According to a Boise State study, 86% of physicians found ZymaDerm to be an effective treatment for molluscum contagiosum for their patients. Furthermore, ZymaDerm's company has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Most users of ZymaDerm have found at least some effectiveness in clearing lesions, while the majority have found great success. There are countless testimonials of patients who found success all over the internet.

Typically, users see improvement in their molluscum contagiosum within a week or two. Papules should start to shrink and, in time, completely disappear. It is important to treat any new papules that do appear.

As with any treatment, ZymaDerm does not work for some users. While this is far from the majority, it should be noted.

Are There Any Side-Effects Associated With ZymaDerm?

Most users have reported no side effects while using ZymaDerm to treat molluscum contagiosum. Some users have reported smelling a strong stench after applying the product, but very few have reported any pain or discomfort.

Application does not typically cause any stinging or skin irritation. In very rare cases, a mild skin irritation may occur that could result in itchiness, redness, or soreness - but this is not typical.

Most users have reported little to no scarring after their molluscum contagiosum papules faded. With any skin problem, however, there is a chance of some discoloration or residual marks. If there are any, they should not be noticable and should fade over time.

​Supplemental Ingredient Information

5X Iodine HPUS

Iodine is an element that occurs naturally and is used for multiple purposes. Iodine works by killing viruses and bacteria that would, under normal circumstances, make the body ill. In the case of molluscum contagiosum, iodine may be useful for destroying the virus that causes the condition as well as eliminating the papules that come with the diagnosis.

Iodine can be used safely by most people when used in approved products. Iodine reduces thyroid hormones making the body more efficient at killing bacteria, fungus, and other microorganisms such as amoeba and parasites. Iodine, in some dosages, can destroy pathogens, fungi, and mold.

Iodine has been used for decades as a strong, effective antibacterial agent and disinfectant. Iodine helps increase skin regeneration, removing skin tags and decreasing fine lines. It is commonly used for skin conditions such as pimples, acne, warts, and molluscum contagiosum.

5C Thuja Occidentalis HPUS

Indicated for fungus, warts, and other skin conditions, like molluscum contagiosum, Thuja Occidentalis is a homeopathic remedy that has been used since early times. This herbal remedy is made using North American evergreen conifers.

It is used as an antibacterial remedy for skin conditions and cold sores. It naturally boosts the immune system helping your body fight off skin disease causing viruses. It makes an excellent antiseptic, tonic, and skin astringent.

Thuja Occidentalis has a very special influence on skin epithelial cells and has been used to treat skin conditions such as fungus, epithelioma, warts, condylomata, and molluscum contagiosum. Although used as a natural remedy for multiple conditions, Thuja Occidentalis' principal use is for skin conditions.

5C Echinacea Agustifolia HPUS

For centuries Echinacea has been used to treat skin ailments such as boils, wounds, ulcers, herpes, psoriasis, and even burns. As part of the aster family, Echinacea originated in North America. There are nine identified species, of which three are used for medical purposes.

Applying a tincture form of Echinacea has been used to help heal wounds, yeast infections, herpes, acne, and multiple other skin conditions. Although used in recent times for boosting the immune system to fight off illness, Echinacea was originally used to heal wounds.

Echinacea works in two ways; one way is preventing the infection by directly attacking bacteria. It then stimulates the production of white blood cells. The herb also helps initiate the healing and sealing up process allowing the wound, or in this case, skin condition, time to heal.

Warts are caused by many different kinds of viruses, and each virus may result in a different type of wart. Most warts found on humans are caused by the human papilloma virus. The course of the warts is highly variable with some resolving in weeks while others take years. Warts are most commonly found on the hands and feet but can appear on other areas of the body, including the genitals.

ZymaDerm Formula 4 contains Iodine, Thuja Occidentalis, Origanum Vulgare, Myrtus Communis, Cymbopogon Citratus, and Pelargonium Graveolens. This all natural remedy contains no caustic agents.

In order to treat your molluscum contagiosum with Terrasil, you will need to do the following:

  • Wash and dry the affected skin

Like Conzerol, and many of the other OTC products for treating molluscum contagiosum, Terrasil is very easy to use. Unlike curettage and cryotherapy, it is not necessary to see a doctor to receive the treatment or monitor it. Simply apply the cream and you're done!

How Effective is Terrasil at Treating Molluscum Contagiosum?

Terrasil has received a rating of 4.7 out of 5 from over 2,422 reviews on Shopper Approved. This is very high as compared to other treatments for molluscum contagiosum. 

Both children and adults have found success with Terrasil. Many users have reported improvement in their outbreaks within as little as 1 weeks. Most have reported seeing complete clearance in anywhere from 2 to 10 weeks. Users with as many as 100 molluscum papules have even found success with Terrasil!

Like most other products, especially those designed to treat molluscum contagiosum, some people have seen little to no effectiveness with Terrasil. While this is not commonplace, it is necessary to explain this - as not everyone will see great results.

Are There Any Side-Effects Associated With Terrasil?

A great thing about Terrasil is that is almost never causes any pain or irritation on users. This can be attributed to its natural ingredients and lack of harsh and irritating chemicals.

Unlike other treatments, such as apple cider vinegar or curettage, Terrasil causes no pain when applying it either. As it is a simple, non-harsh ointment, users should experience no immediate burning or stinging after application.

Most users reported little to no scarring after their molluscum papules vanished. This is extremely important, as many sufferers want to get rid of them for the unattractive physical appearance in the first place. Having healthy looking skin after clearance is vital, and Terrasil's formula assures this. 

As mentioned above, Terrasil is safe for children as well as adults. Children should not expect to experience any irritation or discomfort when using Terrasil. If any discomfort should arise, however, we recommend that you rinse the product off with water and consult with your doctor.

Final Thoughts

Terrasil is a safe and effective treatment for molluscum contagiosum. If you are suffering from the virus, consider giving Terrasil a shot.
