Molluscum

My 2 year old has molluscum and the dermatologist said that the treatments to remove it will be painful and leave scaring, so she was not willing to do it on him because of his age. I've read online about using zinc oxide cream on the bumps to clear them up and we have been using a diaper rash cream that is 40% zinc oxide. Just wondering if anyone has used this treatment and if it was successful and how long it took to clear the bumps.

Usually the molluscum will clear up on it's own- how long has your little one had it?
