Molluscum Contagiosum Treatment

Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes small, pearly, or flesh-colored bumps on the skin. The bumps are painless and usually no larger than the size of a pencil eraser. It is commonly seen in children but can affect people of all ages. The virus is easily transmitted through direct contact or sharing personal items, such as towels or clothing. The virus isn’t particularly harmful, though it can irritate. 

At the California Dermatology Institute, our molluscum contagiosum specialists diagnose and treat molluscum contagiosum effectively. We understand the physical and emotional discomfort this condition can cause and are committed to providing effective molluscum contagiosum treatment options tailored to your needs.

Molluscum Treatment may include topical creams, cryotherapy (freezing the bumps), or curettage (scraping the bumps). Our dermatology providers will assess the severity and location of the lesions to determine the most appropriate treatment approach.

In addition to molluscum treatment, our team will guide preventive measures to minimize the spread of the virus to other individuals and reduce the likelihood of reinfection.

If you or your child is experiencing symptoms of molluscum contagiosum, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at the California Dermatology Institute. Our molluscum contagiosum specialists will provide a comprehensive evaluation and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve clear, healthy skin.
