Mollescum contagious Virus
Molluscum is generally a benign infection and symptoms may resolve without treatment. Molluscum was once a disease primarily of children, but it has evolved to become a sexually transmitted disease in adults.
122 million people have MCV in the world of 2010 (%1.8 of the population)
Although molluscum contagiosum lesions may resolve by themselves, treatment can shorten the infection. Several effective treatments are available. In most cases, the lumps only require a single treatment, although they may take a couple of weeks to disappear. After treatment, the lumps may become irritated, itchy or sore. Bathing in salt water may help relieve these symptoms. Do not scratch any irritated areas after treatment, as this may spread the infection.
