First of all we have to treat all the existing lesions with simple surgery or with machines.Chances of recurrence are always there with this disease as this is viral infection and if immunity is low.If lesions appear again we will have to do other tests to check the immune status,as hiv is only one reason for persistent molluscum. Usually of immunity is good and all the treatment instructions are followed (after surgery) lesions clear and do not recur.Hope I answered all your queries.Regards, Dr.Jeetendra Khatuja (ASKA AESTHETIC CLINIC,MUMBAI)
