Molluscum – Avoid beetle juice (cantharone). 2 cases

Case No.1.

Before wheatgrass. Large, inflamed molluscum spots on 18 month old child. Some are inflamed & filled with pus due to cantherone (beetle juice).

9 days after commencing wheatgrass , lesions have flattened & some have almost disappeared. There is Less inflammation & pus is no longer in the spots above the navel.

Mother’s Story:

My daughter B is doing very well.  Wheatgrass extract has made a huge difference to her molluscums and I’m really glad I bought it. When they applied Cantharone (acidy stuff) on her lesions of her abdomen and legs they had blistered up and left raw skin after popping which was a very painful.

I had just received wheatgrass extract around that time and started using it straight away.  Before that I had noticed little molluscums started forming again so just as well i received it right away. I applied it everyday and noticed after a week the difference. It stopped spreading and growing any further.  I am still religiously applying wheatgrass.

Case No. 2.

Painful burns in a 2 year old child one day after treatment with Cantharone for molluscum spots which are clearly visible.

After 9 days daily treatment with Wheatgrass extract, the burns have completely healed, mild skin discoloration persists and the child is pain free. Molluscum spots have almost disappeared.

Dr. Chris Reynolds’ comment about using cantharone:

The Food and Drug Adminstiration in the United States considers Cantharone (cantharadin) to be “dangerous” and “an extremely toxic substance”. It has therefore not approved its use as a therapeutic substance. By comparison, wheatgrass is effective for treating molluscum and side effects are virtually unheard of. The wheatgrass extract I use and recommend for this condition is quite safe for use on the skin, and can even be used safely for oral conditions.

Cantharone (cantharidin) is a highly toxic substance extracted from beetles and used for killing the wart virus. It is also very expensive. By comparison, molluscum in most cases, responds well to wheatgrass, which is non-toxic, safe and doesn’t damage the skin such as seen in this case.
