Molluscum Contigiosum. It is an infection caused by a poxvirus (molluscum contagiosum virus). The result of the infection is usually a benign, mild skin disease characterized by lesions (growths) that may appear anywhere on the body.. Molluscum contagiosum is diagnosed mainly in children aged two to five years, but also in sexually active teenagers and adults, and immunocompromised persons. Atopic dermatitis may increase the risk for developing molluscum contagiosum since it alters the skin barrier and immunity function. In people living with HIV. Usually self limiting. Benzoyl peroxide, and tretinoin are used as home treatments. creams that include podophyllotoxin cream, salicylic acid, tretinoin (Retin A, Atralin, Renova, Avita, Altinac), and cantharidin may remove lesions.
