As the medical team of physicians and researchers who represent ZymaDerm ™, we’re happy to bring you the following Molluscum FAQ. If you have any additional questions you would like us to address in this Molluscum FAQ, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you, and we’re here to help!
Is ZymaDerm™ Safe, Even For My Child?
The components of ZymaDerm™ have a long history of safe topical use for skin problems. It is safe for infants as young as nine months of age, and equally safe and effective on children and adults. Prior to making ZymaDerm™ available to the general public, we used it for two years to treat closely supervised patients in our own medical practice.
Today, after 100,000 people have used ZymaDerm™, there have been no reports of long term side effects. In extremely rare instances, (less than 1/3000 people) a mild sensitization reaction to ZymaDerm™ may occur that shows itself as mild irritation, itching or redness that may spread beyond the area of the molluscum or herpes bump, itself. If you or your child experiences any discomfort or irritation from ZymaDerm, discontinue use and contact us.
ZymaDerm™ contains tea tree oil, jojoba oil, Australian lemon myrtle, organically-bound iodine from seaweed extracts, small amounts of echinacea and thuja, and selenium occurring naturally in the plant extracts used, all of which are organic. It is processed on dedicated equipment and contains no tree nuts or any other allergen. Many children with allergies have safely and successfully used ZymaDerm™.
What Makes ZymaDerm™ Naturally Effective?
ZymaDerm™ is a safe, natural, topical agent to aid in the treatment of rashes such as molluscum. It is plant-based, non-toxic, painless, and contains no drugs. It consists of a patented blend (US Patent #7,311,928 and #7,807,202) of soothing essential oils containing powerful, natural terpene oxides. Dr. Briant Burke, a practicing MD and medical research scientist, is ZymaDerm's™ co-developer and Naturopathix's medical director. He has over a dozen publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, and over 20 years of clinical experience treating children just like yours.
Can I Use ZymaDerm™ On Any Part Of The Body?
ZymaDerm™ may safely be applied to all areas of the skin, including the face and genitals. You may use it on the lips, but not in the oral cavity, such as the inside of the cheeks (buccal mucosa) or on the tongue. ZymaDerm is not caustic, and it will not harm normal skin. In rare instances, occasional sensitization of the skin can result in some redness and irritation.
Care should be taken to avoid getting ZymaDerm™ in the eyes, as it will sting. If this should happen, flush with lots of warm tap water. For molluscum bumps near the eye, one customer used the flat head of a pin (not the pointed end...ouch!) to apply enough ZymaDerm™ to moisten the bump, but not so much that it ran off into the eye.
ZymaDerm is NOT TO BE TAKEN INTERNALLY, as it contains iodine.
Is ZymaDerm™ Easy To Use?
Few treatments are easier to use. Zymaderm™ is applied twice a day, directly on the molluscum bumps. Each bottle comes with a glass rod applicator, or a small brush, to apply ZymaDerm™ to the molluscum bump and minimize contact with normal skin. For molluscum bumps near the eye, one customer kindly shared this idea with us: use the head of a pin (not the pointed end...ouch!) to apply enough ZymaDerm to moisten the bump, but not so much that it runs off into the eye.
Will ZymaDerm™ Always Work?
Nothing works all the time for everyone. ZymaDerm™ has a remarkable success rate above 86% to clear the molluscum on you or your child. So you have about a 9 out of 10 chance it will work for you. If it doesn't, we offer additional steps that have enabled most people to be successfully treated. And, we give you a money- back guarantee.
Will The Molluscum Bumps Return?
All treatments, including ZymaDerm™, treat the visible bumps. Nothing will get rid of the skin virus, except your own body's immune system. This may take months, to 2-3 years. In the meantime, you can expect new bumps now and then. However, the subsequent outbreaks of molluscum are generally less severe and become less frequent over time. Treat the new bumps with ZymaDerm™ as soon as they are visible, for speedy resolution.
What If ZymaDerm™ Doesn't Work For Me Or My Child?
We offer a six-month money back guarantee to help assure your satisfaction. If you are not happy, let us know, and we will give you a refund, up to six months from the date of purchase. No conditions, no exceptions. (Please don't cheat. Thank you). Return the bottle to:

Why Doesn't My Doctor Know About ZymaDerm™?
Have you noticed the number and frequency of multi-million dollar advertising campaigns on television, magazines and other media that tell consumers to "ask their doctor about" a particular drug they are promoting? That's because even the major pharmaceutical companies find it difficult, and very expensive, to keep physicians up-to-date on all the new drugs and treatments as they become available. It's also one of the main reasons drugs cost so much.
We simply don't have the money or the desire to spend large amounts on national advertising or to pay the sales people who personally visit doctors to sell them on a drug or treatment. The good news is that, since we don't spend our money on this type of costly marketing, we make ZymaDerm™ the most cost- effective treatment you'll ever use.
As the success of tens of thousands people who have been painlessly treated for molluscum contagiosum with ZymaDerm™ becomes better known, we're delighted to tell you that more and more leading dermatology clinics, pediatricians and other doctors are using ZymaDerm™. It is carried by many of the major online retailers, such as Amazon.com and Drugstore.com, as well as more than 7,000 neighborhood drugstores, including Walgreen's.
Is ZymaDerm™ FDA Approved?
ZymaDerm™ is FDA approved as a homeopathic formula and conforms to the standards of the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS), a compendium recognized as both official and authoritative by the FDA. Each of the active ingredients in ZymaDerm is stated in the Pharmacopeia to be useful as an aid in the treatment of skin rash conditions. If a drug-free agent is listed in the HPUS for treating certain conditions, a product containing that agent may be marketed for those conditions without new FDA approval. The approval has already been granted for those agents listed, as long as the concentrations used in the product are within the specified limits. ZymaDerm™ meets these criteria as specified in the HPUS. While ZymaDerm is FDA approved as a homeopathic formula, that is different from stating that it is FDA approved as a specific treatment for molluscum.
