Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus characterized by the presentation of small, pink, water-filled, pink lesions with a dimple at the center with occasional itch or sore and may be present singly or in groups.
The disease is self-limiting though takes years sometimes to get resolved.
The condition is contagious and may spread through direct contact or via contaminated objects and the lesion may spread to other areas of the body parts by touching the parts after scratching the lesion.
Though it is a self-limiting disease, cryotherapy is advised but it is not an ideal way.
Painless, fluid-filled, pinkish-red papules on any part of the body which may itch occasionally.
Molluscum contagiosum is caused by a virus (molluscum contagiosum virus) causing fluid-filled lesions.
Homeopathy can remove the lesions early and can help overcome the associated symptoms like itching, soreness, and pain.
