Equipment

Procedure

Take a shower to ensure that the goo inside the bumps is noticeable. Sterilize the Q-tips, needle and the tweezers using the alcohol. You will then use the torch for lighting and magnifying glass to spot the tiny bumps. Wear the gloves and disinfect the skin by rubbing on the bumps using the alcohol soaked Q-tip. You will then notice a whiteness at the middle of the bumps which you will prick using the disinfected needle. Then use the tweezers to remove the white goo which you will put on a tissue and throw away.

If you fail to remove the white goo, then you can squeeze the edges of the bump to remove the goo which can come out with some blood. Ensure you clean and sterilize the tweezers and the needle after removing each bump to avoid spreading the disease. Soak a Q-tip in betadine and rub the worked on bump so as to sterilize the wound and kill the virus. This procedure applies to all small bumps with a white center. But if some bumps lack the white center then you can prick the bump using a needle till blood oozes out.

In the case you see the white goo on the same bumps, later on, repeat the procedure. Use Thuya oil on the bumps twice a day to attack any remaining virus. If some bumps lack the white goo and they are too small to prick, then you can rub them using Thuya oil to fight the virus off. Once you are done with the process, put a folded toilet paper on the affected area to avoid staining your clothes. Remove once the area is dry.

Post Recovery

It is advisable to apply lotion on the treated area two times a day to avoid eczema and dryness. Also, keep swallowing the Thuya tablets even after recovery to boost your immune system so it can destroy the remaining virus. As you can see, it is possible to eliminate the skin disease by yourself as soon as you spot it. Thus, you don’t have to wait for half a year for it to disappear.
