Patience: Typically molloscum will worsen initially but over a period of weeks may self resolve. I would not do anything drastic until rash seems to reach point it is not improving on its own. avoid applying steroids due to possibility of spread. There are treatments such as cantharidin, imiquamod, tretinoin but they can all cause irritation to the skin.
