would it be safe to use either Detol or Vagasil on Molloscum ?

Hi, I saw my GP today and he diagnosed these small lumps on my perineum as Molloscum Contagiosm. He recommended taking a standard pain killer for the pain, occasional salt baths for the Molloscum, and that they would clear up in about a week. I was wondering, would it be safe to use either Detol or Vagasil topical creams on them to help alleviate the soreness of skin on skin contact? Thanks!

Vagisil cream is for pain. If you have pain use it. Dettol is antiseptic, you can dilute and use it. Both do not cure Molloscum. Continue salt water washes.
