What is Molluscum?

Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection that usually appears as raised bumps on the skin. While molluscum is usually not harmful, this skin condition is highly contagious and can lead to discomfort and secondary infections of the skin.

It’s also possible for molluscum bumps to remain on the skin for many months or even years. There is also a higher risk for complications if you have a weakened immune system.

How Can Molluscum be Treated?

Can Molluscum Be Prevented?

Many molluscum bumps will heal naturally on their own, but sometimes your Levy Dermatology Provider may determine that treatment is needed. There are a few different approaches to molluscum treatment, including topical medications, curettage, or freezing the wound with cryotherapy.

The easiest way to prevent molluscum is by avoiding touching the skin of someone who has the virus. Maintaining good personal hygiene can also help prevent the spread of viral infections.
