In brief: There is no cure yet
Molluscum contagiosum is a dna poxvirus.
.Type 1-4 (mcv1-4) and they spread easily among humans only. It can be spread sexually in adult. They often go away on their own 3 wks to 3 months range, but because the are easily transmitted, an outbreak can last up to 18 months. Various topicals are use, but none is considered cure. Wart cream, acne cream(benzoyl peroxide) may help. Consult doc. Good luck.

you can certainly try that..essential oil from the Australian lemon myrtle mixed with olive oil etc..can be used. don't scrape them because scraping can actually spread the virus to the sourround skin and cause more of the bumps...thus perpetruating the cycles. if worsen, consult doc to do cryotherapy in office...good luck

In brief: Remove or not
Moluscum are small bumps on the skin.
They can be removed a number of ways, cryotherapy, curetting, etc. But if you leave them alone long enough, they will often go away on their own.
