Please explain the condition and any way out to get rid of this. Please explain the Medications, Food habits, Personal care and any other care if required. Do exposure to sun light has any role to play here?

Doctor:It is a viral infection.
Doctor:Molluscum skin lesion usually has an indentation in the center.
Doctor:It can recur
User:ok.. she told that, applying some medicinal drops is required
User:that can kill virus
Doctor:Mostly the doctor aims at treating the lesions so that they do not spread
User:but u have to keep a check on the spread
User:atleast for next 4 months
Doctor:A topical medicine is applied on the lesions.
Doctor:to suppress the lesions.
Doctor:Though it is harmless but it tends to spread fast
Doctor:Most people have complete clearing within 4- 6 months.
User:so, as in my case, since hiv dna pcr qualitative analysis test after 30days eliminated the hiv risk, worry about these rest of minor infections is not necessary right?
User:appropriate care is enough?
Doctor:A person's immunity plays a big role in clearing them away.
Doctor:I think you have great immunity and the lesions will clear away.
Doctor:Yes you may take personal care.
Doctor:It should not spread further until the lesions have been taken care of medically.
Doctor:Do you have any question?
User:ok.. sure doctor, my only major question is, Is there any thing to worry about
Doctor:Not really.
