Molluscum Contagiosum Treatment NJ

Molluscum contagiosum is caused by a virus and usually causes a mild skin disease. The virus affects only the outer layer of skin and primarily affects children. The virus causes small white, pink, or flesh-colored raised bumps or growths with a dimple or pit in the center. The bumps are usually smooth and firm. In most people, the growths range from about the size of a pinhead to as large as a pencil eraser. The bumps may appear anywhere on the body, alone or in groups and may be itchy, red, swollen and/or sore.

Treatments for Molluscum

The virus that causes molluscum is spread from person to person by touching the affected skin. The virus may also be spread by touching a surface with the virus on it, such as a mat, clothing, or toys. Treatments performed in our office include application of medicated drops, freezing with liquid nitrogen, or gently scraping the molluscum away.
