Molluscum is characterized with pink or flesh colored bumps on the skin that have a pimple like appearance. The virus is contagious and is easily spread from person to person; children are commonly affected by the virus. Molluscum can be transmitted by sharing towels and clothing, swimming, as well as skin-to-skin contact. Scratching or picking the bumps can spread the virus from one part of the body to another. Molluscum may resolve without treatment at times; if the virus does not resolve, there are treatment options available.
