Freezing off Mollusca

Hey i had a bad case of mollusca contagiosa right above my pubic region.  I got them frozen off 2 and a half days ago and was expecting quick results.  My doctor said they would fall off and be gone in about 10 days but as of right now, they are stiill there looking the same except the skin around each bump is bright red, making it appear worse(i know its probably normal) .

my question is, When will this red disappear and when am i "uncontagious?"  Does this sound normal?
besides getting them froze i havent done anything nor was i instructed to by my doctor,. he seemed pretty chill about the whole thing but it doesnt look any better after 2 days.

Yes it sounds normal! I have molluscum in my genital area and have been having them frozen off for the past couple of months. They should turn colors and then start to scab over. Please keep me updated I'm determined to get rid of these so it would be great to hear any improvment you experience!
