Molluscum

Molluscum Contagiosum is a common skin disorder that mostly affects children.

It is caused by a virus similar to the wart virus that lives in the top layer of the skin. As the name implies, it is spread by direct skin to skin contact and is usually found in areas that touch each other such as arm folds and the groin area. It typically appears as shiny bumps that may have an indentation in the center. In most cases this infection will resolve on its own within one year. Treatment options are available and include cryotherapy, scraping, cantharadin (blister beetle juice) and topical creams.
