Greetings. Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a viral infectio that can be transmitted by sexual intercourse/close contact. Kindly take note of the same and indulge in protected practises. As far treatment of MC is concerned, you can go ahead with needling / elecro cautery of the lesions (spl care to be taken if glans penis is involved). The incidence of recurence is low and can occur with any given form of treatment. so dont worry. For any further queries, you can ask me on follow up messaging. Warm regards
