Molluscan contagiosum is a viral skin infection caused by closely related types of Pox Virus, and is

medication following the principles of Homoeopathy, in these cases. And the results are extremely
After applying the indicated medicines as per the guidelines of Organon of Medicine and in
different phases as per the susceptibility of each individual patient, it has come out that the
medicines were able to not only remove or dissolute the skin lesion efficiently, but also to provide
relief to the associated symptoms of the patient. Not only that, none of the patients complained
about any adverse effect during the treatment.
The case studies can be considered as a pilot project. In the next stage randomised
controlled trials with larger sample size can be taken up so that conclusive evidence on the healing
power of Homoeopathy for viral skin diseases can be generated.
