Molluscum Symptoms

February 4th, 2009

Are there molluscum symptoms?  This is a common question and one that is relatively straight forward to answer.

In most cases, there are no symptoms associated with molluscum contagiosum at all.  The small, flesh colored/pearly bumps typically do not burn, itch, sting nor hurt.

There are times however that symptoms may occur.  Aound 10% of people with molluscum will develop an eczematous response.  This is seen as a red, scaly and often itchy rash thay usually occurs around the actual bumps themselves.

In addition, at times the molluscum may become inflamed or even infected.  At these times, they may appear red and can become tedner, even appearing like a pustule.  In these cases, it is advised to seek medical attention to treat the infection.

In summary, the usual course of this viral process is to have no true molluscum symptoms unless there is either a secondary infection or reactive eczema response.
