Molluscum contagiosum
Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin that results in small raised pink lesions. They may occur with mild itching sensation.

The infection is caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV). The virus is spread either by direct contact, including sexual activity, or via contaminated objects such as towels. The infection can also be spread to other areas of the body themselves. Risk factors include a weak immune system, and atopic dermatitis.

Removal may be tried with freezing, laser ablation, or mechanical removal by curretage tools. Podophyllotoxin or salicylic acid applied to the skin, may also be used for treatment.

Approximately 122 million people globally were affected by the disease as of 2010 (1.8% of the population). It is more common in children between the ages of one and ten years old. Having an infection is not a reason to keep a child out of school or daycare.

Treatment ― OTC Drugs
Don't wash or touch the affected area too much, as rubbing or scratching will keep the virus spreading from small cuts. Try applying the salicylic acid carefully to the affected area only.

Molluscum contagiosum, also called water warts, is a benign condition of the skin. The skin lesions of molluscum contagiosum are called mollusca. The typical lesion appears dome-shaped, round, and pinkish-purple in color.

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a self-limited infectious dermatosis, frequent in pediatric population, sexually active adults, and immunocompromised individuals. It is caused by molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) which is a virus of the Poxviridae family. MCV is transmitted mainly by direct contact with infected skin, which can be sexual, non-sexual, or autoinoculation. Clinically, MC presents as firm rounded papules, pink or skin-colored, with a shiny and umbilicated surface. The duration of the lesions is variable, but in most cases, they are self-limited in a period of 6-9 months. The skin lesions may vary in size, shape, and location, which is more frequent in immunosuppressed patients, and could present complications such as eczema and bacterial superinfection.

Molluscum contagiosum and warts are caused by viral infections. Molluscum contagiosum usually goes away on its own without any lasting effects, but it can be more widespread in people with weakened immune systems. Although the lesions typically vanish by themselves, treatment methods like scraping, cryotherapy, or applying certain acids can help speed up recovery and lower the chances of spreading the virus. Warts, on the other hand, are thickened skin growths triggered by the human papillomavirus. Depending on their location and appearance, warts are categorized into different types (common warts, periungual warts, flat warts, filiform warts, plantar warts). Treatment options for warts include various methods like applying acids, cryotherapy, scraping, using medication, or boosting the immune system.
