The Molluscum Contagiosum Virus (MCV) is part of the “Pox family”, previously common in children, now a sexually transmitted disease in adults.
Initial symptoms include fleshy, pearly-white, gray-white, yellow or pink colored papule lesions, beginning as small bumps, becoming larger over time. Lesions are often on the face, legs, arms, trunk, lower abdomen, thighs, buttocks, anal region, groin, labia, and scrotum. The affected areas have itching and tenderness, lasting from 2 weeks to years.
The virus is transmitted by skin-to-skin contact with active weeping lesions and from contaminated objects, clothing or towels. Frequently children and adults contract the virus in bathrooms and public swimming pool areas.
Apply the Viral Inhibitor Pro up to 8 times daily to each papule. To prevent lesions, users emphasize early detection and immediate applications. 7Sep07 11p
