Molluscum contagiosum virus transmission through direct skin contact between children sharing a bath and between athletes sharing gymnasium equipment and benches. An association between school swimming pool use and molluscum contagiosum infection.
In healthy patients, molluscum contagiosum is generally self-limited and heals spontaneously after several months. Individual lesions are seldom present for more than 2 months.
Therapeutic modalities include topical application of various medications, radiation therapy, and/or surgery. Each technique may result in scarring or postinflammatory pigmentary changes. Frequently, multiple treatment sessions are necessary because of the recurrence of treated lesions and/or the appearance of new lesions.
