Molluscum Contagiosum

Molluscum Contagiosum is a viral infection confined to the skin. While it can occur in people of all ages, it is more commonly seen in children and appears and small well-defined white and pink bumps. The virus is transmitted by skin to skin contact, often from clothing and towels. Patients with eczema or atopic dermatitis have a tendency to contracting the virus. Treatment involves methods that destroy the lesion such as applying a medication topically in the office, freezing or burning the lesions, and shaving them off entirely.
