Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin that causes small flesh colored bumps on the skin surface. The number of lesions usually range from 2 to 20, and appear in clusters. The infection is most common in children and adolescents, although adults can also be affected. While the condition is not harmful and does not have any other symptoms, the virus inside the lesions is contagious.
Your Trillium Creek Dermatology skin expert will assess the severity of your condition to determine a reasonable course of action. In most cases, the lesions will heal without treatment over a period of 6 to 9 months. Additional treatment options may include removal of the lesions or topical preparations to speed the resolution of the lesions.
