Molluscum Contagiosum

Molluscum-ContagiosumThese are small round white bumps, caused by the poxvirus, that often appear in clusters and can spread very easily.  They are most often seen in children and can be spread from direct contact.  There are times that molluscum can spontaneously resolve, but due to their contagious nature, treatment is recommended.  They are treated in our office with topical medications, liquid nitrogen or surgical removal.
