Treatment for Molluscum
The good news: this viral infection is harmless. The bad news: the virus is highly contagious – spreading easily in day care centers and sweaty locker rooms, causing clusters of painless skin colored bumps that can sometimes take several months to resolve.
Childhood Molluscum infections typically clear up on their own. Please allow our medical providers to help if your child develops bothersome lesions, or increasing numbers of lesions. If you develop Molluscum as an adult—especially in the genital area – you may want to give us a call. Depending on the location and number of lesions, a topical treatment or minor procedure can help eliminate these unsightly lesions.
