      What is Cautery for Molluscum?

      Cautery for Molluscum refers to a medical procedure employed in the treatment of Molluscum contagiosum, a viral skin infection characterized by the development of small, raised lesions on the skin. Cautery involves the use of heat or a specific instrument to burn or remove the Molluscum contagiosum lesions. This procedure is typically performed by healthcare professionals in a controlled setting, ensuring precision and minimizing the risk of complications.

      Understanding What is Cautery

      Cautery, in the context of Molluscum treatment, can take different forms. One common method is electrocautery, where an electrically heated instrument is used to destroy the Molluscum lesions. Another approach involves the use of chemical cautery, where certain substances are applied to the lesions to induce controlled burning or tissue destruction. The choice of cauterization method depends on various factors, including the size and location of the lesions, as well as the patient’s overall health.
      Cautry is a simple and quick procedure, Numbing cream is applied for 20-40 minutes before the procedure followed by cauterization. The lesions are removed in one session followed by redness and scabbing in the treated area which falls off on its own in 4-5 days, leaving normal skin behind. Molluscum can develop time and again due to several reasons and should be removed by the same procedure again if they come back.

      Benefits of Cautery for Molluscum

      ● Effective Lesion Removal: Cautery is known for its effectiveness in removing Molluscum lesions by either burning or chemically destroying the affected tissue, providing a direct and targeted approach to treatment.
      ● No Scarring: When performed by skilled healthcare professionals, cautery for Molluscum can minimise scarring compared to other removal methods. Precise control over the cauterization process helps preserve surrounding healthy tissue.
      ● Reduced Risk of Spread: Cautery helps reduce the risk of Molluscum contagiosum spreading to other areas of the skin. By eliminating the lesions, the potential for further infection is diminished, contributing to a faster and more complete recovery.
      ● Quick Procedure: Cautery procedures are often relatively quick, making them a convenient option for patients seeking a swift resolution to their Molluscum contagiosum infection.
