National Guideline on the Management of Molluscum Contagiosum

AbstractMolluscum contagiosum is caused by a poxvirus. The virus is probably passed on by direct skin-to-skin contact, and may affect any part of the body. Sexual contact may lead to the appearance of lesions in the genital area. There is anecdotal evidence associating facial lesions with HIV-related immunodeficiency. This guideline addresses the following aspects of molluscum: aetiology; clinical features; diagnosis; management; auditable outcome measures.
