Molluscum Treatments:

Molluscum is a condition caused by a virus in the same family as the pox virus. It is contagious and can be spread through direct contact, but because adults tend to develop an immunity to the virus over time, it is far more prevalent in children. It is contagious not only from person to person but can also spread on an individual due to scratching and rubbing. Left untreated, molluscum can cover large parts of the body. Scratching may cause scars that last a lifetime, as well.

Molluscum tends to go away on its own over the course of a few months to a few years, but it can be treated by a dermatologist to speed healing and provide relief from the symptoms. Lesions can be frozen or scraped, and medications that are commonly used to remove warts may also prove effective in treating molluscum.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
