What is Molluscum?

Molluscum is a virus. This virus is part of the poxvirus family. Infection with the Molluscum Contagiosum Virus (MCV) results in small, flesh colored bumps that occur on the skin.  The virus is spread by direct contact and usually occurs from person to person.

Individuals may present with anywhere from a single molluscum bump to hundreds of individual bumps.  The bumps may occur anywhere on the skin including the face, torso, arms, legs and groin area.

There are several molluscum treatments and we suggest you visit the other sections of our website for additional information.
