Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin that can be spread through skin to skin contact or through sexual contact to those with weak immune systems. It appears as small bumps on the skin that can commonly be confused with the appearance of warts.
Although not always necessary, treatment of molluscum contagiosum may involve surgical scraping (curettage), freezing with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy), or removal through heat (cautery). It’s important to have a dermatologist look at your skin conditions in order for them to accurately be diagnosed. This will help us create the best possible treatment plan for you.
