In brief: Molluscum

Tretinoin or retin a (tretinoin) may be tried under the direction of a dermatologist .
The peeling effect and mild inflammation that results from its use is a non invasive treatment option.

In brief: May not need to

Molluscum is a pox virus (related to smallpox actually) and is very infectious.
But it takes time for to mount an effective immune response. It will generally disappear with time. There are tons of home remedies which will cure it in the same time period if you did nothing. Then people will swear that what they did was effective. See pt barnum.
