What is it?

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a common skin disorder caused by a viral infection of the upper layers of the skin. The MC cause one or more lesions or rashes on the skin and looks something like warts or pimples. It is a common problem in children but can also occur in adults.

The MC is caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV), a member of the poxvirus family. It can spread through skin contact - the - skin, especially during sexual activity that involves rubbing or skin irritation. The MCV is more likely to cause skin lesions in people with compromised immune systems, although many adults with healthy immune systems can develop MC.

MC does not progress to more serious diseases such as cancer. However, by MC skin lesions can be bothersome and disfiguring.
