June 8, 2016
What is Molluscum Contagiosum?
Molluscum Contagiosum is a highly contagious wart-like virus most people have never heard of. This skin disease is most often seen in children. Because it is most commonly seen amongst children, many schools and daycare centers are overrun with this disease. Symptoms of the virus are small dome-shaped bumps that look waxy or pearly. While they are painless, they can be itchy. Treatment can be costly and will require several visits to your doctor to get rid of this stubborn virus.
What causes the Molluscum Contagiosum virus?
These are the most common ways of contracting the virus:
Touch something infected with the virus. You can get molluscum by using an infected towel, touching infected clothing or toys. Have direct skin-to-skin contact.
Children are more prone to contracting molluscum because they have a lot of direct skin-to-skin contact with others.
People who participate in contact sports such as wrestling contract molluscum from direct skin-to-skin contact.
Teens and adults often get the virus through sexual contact.
Once infected with the virus, a person can spread the virus to other parts of the body by scratching or picking at bumps on the skin and then touching skin that does not have bumps. Doing this can spread the virus and cause new bumps causing re-infection.
Helpful Tips To Help Control The Virus
You should avoid shaving skin that has bumps. If you do have open bumps, you need to be very mindful that the virus thrives in a warm damp environment. Because of this, avoid soaking in a tub as this will spread the virus to other parts of your body and make it worse. Being that the virus thrives in a warm, damp environment, you want to keep the infected areas as dry as possible.
Treating Molluscum Contagiosum
Should you or your child contract Molluscum Contagiosum, you can seek treatment from a doctor. Traditional treatment methods include cryotherapy, curettage, laser therapy, or topical creams containing acids or chemicals. These treatments can be very painful, costly, and time-consuming requiring several doctor visits to get rid of the virus.
