These small skin lesions appear mainly on the face, the body, the limps and genitals.

The lesions develop for 2-8 weeks after infection and it is very for the virus to spread, if when the first bumps appear the child rubs or scrapes them.

In many cases if Molluscum Contagiosum is left untreated it can rapidly develop and subside in 2-3 months.

But because new lesions can develop in the place of the old ones, it is recomended to treat it in the early stages, before the lesions increase in number and before other family members or friends get infected.
