Homeopathic Treatment for Molluscum Contagiosum

what’s molluscum contagiosum

Molluscum contagiosum is an infection caused by a poxvirus known as molluscum contagiosum virus( MCV). The rash has small clear or flesh-colored bumps. The bumps can spread from one part of the body to another or from person to person

what causes molluscum contagiosum

People catch molluscum contagiosum when they get the virus on their skin. This can happen by:

  • Having skin-to-skin contact with someone who has molluscum.
  • Touching an object that someone who has a molluscum touched.
  • Sharing a personal item, such as clothing or a towel, with someone who has molluscum.

Who Gets Molluscum?

Molluscum most often happens in kids. But teens can get it too, especially:

  • athletes who have close contacts, such as wrestlers, or athletes who share equipment, such as gymnasts
  • teens with health problems treated with long-term steroid medicine use
  • Those who live in a warm, humid area and have close contact with others
  • People who are sexually active
  • Anyone who has trouble fighting off infections

Where does molluscum contagiosum appear

Mollusca may occur anywhere on the body including the face, neck, arms, legs, abdomen, and genital area, alone or in groups. The lesions are rarely found on the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet.

How is molluscum contagiosum diagnosed?

  • Diagnosis is usually made by the characteristic appearance of the lesion, 
  • A doctor can often tell by just looking.

What are the complications of molluscum contagiosum?

some people experience complications, including:

  • impetigo, or a skin infection that develops after scratching the lesions
  • conjunctivitis, an eye infection 
  • disseminated secondary eczema, 
  • widespread molluscum contagiosum that are larger than usual, often on the face (this often develops in people with reduced immunity)
  • sudden scarring with a pitted appearance, either spontaneously or due to lesion removal surgery

Is molluscum contagiosum curable?

Molluscum bumps usually appear 2 to 6 weeks after viral exposure. The condition lasts for several months to a few years, with an average of about 1 year. During this time, some bumps may disappear on their own, and new ones can develop. 

Molluscum contagiosum is a self-limiting condition; which means that it gets cured if untreated. But if you don’t treat molluscum contagiosum, it usually takes 6-12 months for the bumps to clear up. During that time, you could spread the virus to other people. Some treatment measures may shorten the duration and reduce the chances of the spread.

Once the bumps are gone, the molluscum contagiosum virus is totally gone from your body — it won’t come back later. But you can get bumps again if you get another molluscum contagiosum infection in the future
