What is Molluscum Contagiosum?
Molluscum Contagiosum (MC) is a viral skin infection that manifests itself through small pearly or flesh-colored bumps, which may be clear but with an indented center. The virus that causes this condition is highly contagious but is not harmful.
Generally, most cases of MC will clear up on their own between 6-18 months without treatment. Moreover, when the bumps clear up without being interfered with, no other symptoms or scarring will be experienced. Only spots will be left.
Severe cases of MC that call for treatment are mainly seen with people who have compromised immune system, maybe as a result of other disease conditions. In such cases, treatment is only recommended for adults with unsightly spots that affect their self-esteem. Young children are prohibited from treatment since it may be extremely painful and upsetting. Treatment may sometimes cause permanent scarring.
