Molluscum contagiosum

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a viral infection that affects the skin. Around 9 out of 10 cases happen in children although it can occur at any age.

The virus can be spread through close direct contact, touching contaminated objects, or sexual contact.

MC is generally a harmless condition that normally gets better in a few months without any specific treatment.
