Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a viral infection that affects the skin or mucous membranes. It is caused by molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV) and it mostly affects children, sexually active adults and also people with immune system deficiencies.
In most cases, virus is transmitted through the direct contact with the affected skin, sexual contact or indirect contact with the clothes and towels of an infected person. It usually affects the skin on the body and limbs, and cause specific flesh colored bumps on the skin. Sometimes, untreated viral lesions might persist up to 6 months on the skin.
