Molluscum contagiosum is a common benign, self limiting viral skin infection which occurs in children younger than 5 years of age and sexually active individuals. Transmission occurs by close personal contact and often through fomites - towels, bath, and swimming pool. This condition maybe misdiagnosed as acne whiteheads, milia, pyoderma, basal cell carcinoma, warts furunculosis etc. Diagnosis is usually done on clinical grounds alone by the typical appearance of the lesions. The prognosis is good but individual lesions may persist for months before resolving.
