Have any of you tried any at-home treatments for molluscum contagiosum? I was diagnosed with it a month ago, and had the existing papules removed at the Dr.'s office. More have sprung up, and I would prefer to try and treat them at home, as the treatment from my Dr. left some unattractive scars.

I am a healthy guy who caught Molluscum Contagiosum from a sexual partner. I have gone to a dermatologist many times about the virus and he has given me Aldara as treatment. It seemed to work all right at first, but I just keep getting them and am looking for alternatives to Aldara. I have had them frozen off, but doing that tends to leave scars. I only seem to have them on my stomach an a couple on my inner thigh. I've read about some other treatments that I found on Google, but I would rather hear about how someone else treated it. I'm getting really frustrated by it (and so is my girlfriend). I would like to get rid of them once and for all.
