Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I can understand your concerns. This rash is not that of molluscum contagiosum. This appears to be that of a cutaneous fungal infection called tinea corpora.
Please apply a cream containing CLOTRIMAZOLE and a topical steroid such as betamethasone or beclomethasone. In many countries, it is available as CANDID-B. Apply this cream twice daily for at least 6 weeks.
Keep the area clean and dry. The child should not scratch the area (usually these lesions are itchy). This may lead to spread of the lesions to other sites. Wishing a speedy recovery.
I would really appreciate if you would write to me regarding the response to the aforementioned treatment.
