What are the best treatments for molluscum contagiosum? Evidence-based answer : The answer is unknown. Molluscum contagiosum is a self-limiting disease; however, cryotherapy, sodium nitrite/salicylic acid combination, Australian lemon myrtle oil, benzoyl peroxide, and a tea tree oil/iodine combination may all have some effectiveness in treatment (SOR: B, small RCTs).
