Molluscum Contagiosum, is a viral skin infection that causes either single or multiple raised, pearl-like bumps (papules) on the skin. It is a chronic infection, so lesions may persist from a few months to a few years. However, most cases resolve in six to nine months.

Causes of Molluscum Contagiosum

 Molluscum contagiosum is caused by a virus (the molluscum contagiosum virus) that is part of the pox virus family. The virus is contagious through direct contact and is more common in children. However, the virus also can be spread by sexual contact and can occur in people with compromised immune systems. Molluscum contagiosum can spread on a single individual through scratching and rubbing.

What Are the Symptoms of Molluscum Contagiosum?

Common locations for the molluscum contagiosum papules are on the face, trunk, and limbs of children and on the genitals, abdomens, and inner thighs of adults. The condition usually results in papules that:

  • Are generally painless, but can itch
  • Are small (2 to 5 millimeter diameter)
  • Have a dimple in the center
  • Are initially firm, dome-shaped, and flesh-colored
  • Become softer with time
  • May turn red and drain over time
  • Have a central core of white, waxy material

Molluscum contagiosum usually disappears spontaneously over a period of months to years in people who have normal immune systems. In people who have AIDS or other conditions that affect the immune system, the lesions associated with molluscum contagiosum can be extensive and especially chronic.

  1. Hello my daughter had this for over a year it was becoming painful and itchy because it was on the inside of her thighs, she was 3 when she got them, I gave her 3 pellets each of Arsenicum 200c and Antimonium Crudum 6c every other day for a month and they completely disappeared! I did email you but didn’t receive a message back, which I understand that you cannot reply to everyone as you are very busy, but glad you have this info out for others in need now!
