Brief Answer:
Remedy for genital molluscum

Detailed Answer:

I suggest that you get it removed with either electrocautery or freezing. It is a very minor procedure. Topical medicines might not work that well. You may visit a doctor in your vicinity for the needful. Genital molluscum is an STD and therefore you must screen for other STDs like HSV (Genital Herpes), HIV and VDRL (Syphilis).
