What is Molluscum Contagiosum?

Molluscum contagiosum is a common, harmless condition that appears as a single or multiple pink, red or skin coloured hemispherical dome like spots, occasionally with a central dimple which can occur anywhere. It is caused by the pox virus and is easily passed on to other people by direct skin contact or from sharing towels or bedding. People with molluscum contagiosum are usually self conscious and very concerned about passing it to other people, especially loved ones. You should avoid sharing towels and clothing, but should otherwise carry on life as usual. The condition usually resolves spontaneously after 6-18months, but new spots can develop during this time. Some people choose not to have any treatment, but many are keen for treatment. There are many treatments which can speed up the clearance of the spots, though it is important that treatment is carried out by an experienced doctor to reduce the risk of scarring which may potentially occur due to treatment.

How can Dr Sewell treat Molluscum Contagiosum?

Dr Sewell has years of experience diagnosing and treating many patients with molluscum contagiosum effectively and will choose the best treatment for you. This is usually in the form of cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen treatment- more than one treatment session maybe needed) or curettage and cautery (scraping them off with a special instrument under local anaesthetic), both simple procedures which are highly effective.
