Molluscum Contagiosum

Molluscum Contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes small, painless, round, flesh coloured bumps on the skin. Molluscum Contagiosum is very common among children aged 1 to 10 years, but can affect adults as well.


Molluscum contagiosum is caused by pox virus called the molluscum contagiosum virus.

It spreads via direct skin-to-skin contact, touching a surface or object contaminated with pox virus such as toys, towels, clothes. 

It also spreads through sexual contact with a person infected with molluscum contagiosum virus.

People with a weak immune system are at a higher risk of acquiring molluscum contagiosum infection.



The eruptions in molluscum contagiosum are small, round, painless, pearly, flesh coloured papules. The papules have a dimple in the centre.

The eruption could be between 1mm and 5mm in diameter.

The most common site for molluscum contagiosum eruptions are the face, armpit, neck, arms and hands. 

In adults, the genitals, lower abdomen and inner thighs are involved if the infection is sexually transmitted. Itching and irritation in eruptions may be present.

Scratching the eruptions leads to spread of virus to the nearby skin.
