hi, wasn't really sure where to post this? Are there any medically trained amongst you as i found this a bit puzzling and thought worth mentioning. As many of you know now, we are a family of 6, 2 healthy kids, 2 with me/cfs, healthyish husband and myself with me/cfs (ill after the children, i may add). The 3 members without me/cfs have now all got the pox virus MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSM. If you look it up it seems to suggest people with weakened immune systems generally get this. My daughter got it first at age 11yrs, she has finally got rid of the last boils 2.5yrs later. Our youngest got it 8mths ago (age 5yrs), presumidly catching it off of her, his is still ongoing. The strangest of all is that my husband has had conjunctivitus since december2009 and finally was sent to the eye hospital yesterday, he actually asked him if he was on treatment for chlamydia, as molluscam contagiosm is usually caught by adults as a sexually tansmitted disease if it affects the eyes!! He then informed him about the children having the virus. The 3 with me/cfs haven't caught it off of them. i wondered if this is worth talking about or a coincidence. Molluscum contagiosm is mentioned with illnesses like AIDS.
