      What is Molluscum?

      Molluscum contagiosum is a common and contagious viral skin infection caused by the Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV). This condition is characterised by the development of small, flesh-coloured, or pearly bumps on the skin with a central dimple or indentation. These lesions are usually painless but can be itchy, and they often appear in clusters. Molluscum is highly prevalent among children but can affect individuals of any age. The virus spreads through direct skin-to-skin contact or via contact with contaminated objects, making prevention and early treatment crucial.

      Causes of Molluscum

      ● Viral Infection: Molluscum contagiosum is caused by the MCV, a poxvirus that infects the skin’s top layers. It results in a benign skin condition.
      Direct Contact: Transmission occurs through skin-to-skin contact or sexual intercourse
      Indirect Contact: Such transmission occurs when a healthy person uses personal items such as towels, bedsheets, toys, utensils, etc of an infected person. Scratching and rubbing can spread the infection. Warm/wet environments can also spread the virus.
      ● Weakened Immune System: Individuals with weakened immune systems may be more susceptible to Molluscum.

      Signs of Molluscum

      ● Small Bumps with Central Indentation: Lesions are typically small, and round, and may have a central dimple. It appears as a waxy bump, skin, or pink in colour ranging from 2 mm to 5mm in size.
      Clusters: Bumps often appear in groups or clusters on the skin, majorly in the armpits, neck, buttocks, thighs, face, genitals, abdomen, and chest sides. Except these, it can occur in other areas like soles and palms as well.
      Itching: While generally painless, some individuals may experience mild itching sometimes.
      ● Spontaneous Healing: Lesions may resolve on their own over time, but treatment may be necessary to prevent spread.
