Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin that is mostly seen in children. The virus isn’t particularly harmful, though it can cause irritation. It is easily spread through skin to skin contact, and is highly contagious.

What are the symptoms of Molluscum Contagiosum?

The most prevalent symptom of molluscum contagiosum are small pearly or flesh-colored bumps. The bumps are painless and usually no larger than the size of a pencil eraser.

Owing to its highly contagious nature, molluscum contagiosum can be contracted by anyone. Skin-to-skin contact such as sexual contact or touching of the skin can help spread the virus. You can also be infected by touching an object that has been contacted by a person with molluscum contagiosum.

What are the treatment options for Molluscum Contagiosum?

There are several treatment options to treat this virus. A Forefront dermatologist can recommend freezing the bumps through cryotherapy, or simply scraping off the bumps (curettage). A chemical can also be applied to the bumps to help eliminate them.

If you are interested in molluscum contagiosum treatment, the skin experts at Forefront Dermatology can develop a treatment plan that is safe, effective and personalized for your health needs and the condition of your skin.
