Is Molluscum Contagiosum Curable

Have you been diagnosed with molluscum contagiosum? Or maybe you just noticed some of the tell-tale signs of the virus. Whether you have a confirmed diagnosis or you’re simply nervous about your molluscum contagiosum symptoms, there is likely one question that runs through your mind:

Is molluscum contagiosum curable?

If you’ve been stressing about MSV, there is good news: molluscum contagiosum is completely curable. Unlike other skin conditions, the molluscum contagiosum virus can be completely killed. In fact, there are several treatment options available to cure MCV:

  • Acid can be used to burn away MCV lesions. This can be painful, and may result in recurrence of the virus.
  • Doctors can remove lesions by cutting them away with a sharp instrument. This can result in scarring and can be painful.
  • Doctors may use liquid nitrogen to freeze lesions is another method for treating molluscum contagiosum. This treatment is similar to popular treatments for warts, and can be quite painful.
  • Natural treatments can be used to isolate and treat lesions on the body, offering a pain-free way to cure molluscum contagiosum without scarring.

What can I do in the meantime?

While you determine the best course of action for curing your molluscum contagiosum, the best thing you can do is try to prevent it from spreading. Here are some tips:

  • Try not to scratch the lesions - Touching or scratching MCV lesions can result in spreading the virus to other parts of the body, and can make the virus that much more difficult to treat.
  • Cover lesions - Using a bandage or piece of tape to cover lesions can help prevent the virus from spreading to other parts of your body, or to other people.
  • Don’t share linens - MCV can be spread through touching or using infected linens. To avoid spreading the virus, avoid sharing your towels or washcloths with other people, and clean linens thoroughly using hot water.
  • Don’t shave over lesions on your face or legs - For both women and men, avoid shaving over lesions, as this can lead to infection and pain. It can also make it much easier to spread the virus.

I went to the guinocologist a few months back and got cultures. Nothing came back for any diseases or infections, just a mild UTI. But now a few months later I got more cultures done and got diagnosed with Molluscum Contagiosus. I'm wondering, since I had the same partner that whole time, does that mean I got the infection from him, or by other means that weren't sexual? Or is is an infection that can stay dormant through past sexual partners that I've had and is now popping up?

Hello there!

I am a 20 year old girl and I was diagnosed with Molluscum Contagiosus in September on my genital area and my Doctor told me there is no cure for them. I have done three burning session to remove them but after when I would go home, more smaller ones would appear.
In January I did an at home treatment with apple cider vinegar and it would tremendously and they were all gone within 4 days.
Last week I noticed I had an out break with them and my boyfriend got some but his are almost gone and he has had no treatment at all. I have no idea what to do, I've been suffering with this for over 6 months and they don't want to go away.
I want them completely gone and cured forever!!! It is such a pain and an embarrassment to have them.
What can I do to rid of them for good?!

The MolluscumRx will get rid of them. For you, I would apply 3 times a day. Do not miss a treatment.

In about 5-7 days you will see the lesions begin to respond. Keep applying the product until the lesions are gone. This will help to prevent spreading.

Typically our patients do not see reoccurances of the molluscum lesions.

I have what looks exactly like pictures of Genital Molluscum Contagiosum. Who do I need to see ? A doctor or a skin specialist?

Also. Is this sexually transmitted?

I would go right to a Dermatologist. They will best be able to diagnose molluscum.

Yes, molluscum can be sexually transmitted.
