battling molluscum for five months

I've had molluscum in my genital area for five months now.  It started out as a few little red bumps but I itched them and they spread like crazy.  Got it biopsied and found out they were molluscum.  I got them curetted off but my dermatologist missed a few and new ones grew.  So I decided to cut them off myself and rubbed the area with alcohol every day.  That worked really well.  I stopped seeing bumps for many weeks but out of no where two molluscum bumps reappeared.  Why is this?  I'm getting really frustrated.   When will it stop reappearing?

Some folks just take a while to clear it. It reappearing isn't too unusual at all. continue to follow up with your dermatologist as needed so you have minimal scarring from this.
