    • Mollescum contagiousum usually gets resolved on its own in a couple of months time. I do not recommend this product for that condition. Something like Panchanimbadi vati oral intake makes more sense. Please consult a doctor.

  1. I have been applying this cream on the abscess due to Anal Fistula (bhagandar). Earlier used to apply it without pressure to the abscess – It did not help as much.

    Now after 15-20 days, I am applying the Mahatiktalepam with pressure to the wound and trying to get the medicine in the tract of the fistuala. I have a burning/itchy feeling for about 30 minutes. I do this after sitz bath. Is it ok to apply pressure and try to get the medicine in the tract of ano or should I not apply pressure? I am feeling this is helping as there is no puss or issues with draining from the abscess.

    Thank you in advance for your reply. These Arurvedic meds are a miracle if we really trust them.
