Molluscum contagiosum is a common skin disease that is caused by a poxvirus that infects only the skin. Concern for potential transmission of molluscum contagiosum virus via swimming pools or swimming pool-related paraphernalia is a recurring issue for parents, teachers, coaches, health care, and public health professionals. Several investigations have centered on increased cases of molluscum among children in the context of recreational swimming. But some studies failed to find an association between swimming pool use and virus transmission altogether.Several studies that did implicate swimming pool use with molluscum neglected to adequately account for other factors that could introduce bias or influence virus transmission, such as the age of the subjects, their participation in other forms of physical activity, and their shared use of potential fomites. An additional issue complicating the interpretation of molluscum transmission studies is the widely variable incubation time from infection to development of molluscum lesions, making the association between the event and lesion difficult to confirm.It remains unclear whether contact with contaminated fomites is important or whether swimming in potentially contaminated water alone is sufficient for virus transmission. It is conceivable that maceration of the molluscum lesions following water submersion facilitates person-to-person contact or fomite transmission. Current culture techniques do not support the growth of molluscum contagiosum virus. Further research is necessary to better characterize molluscum contagiosum virus viability in pool environments.Since molluscum contagiosum may be found in up to ten percent of the pediatric population at any given time, the decision to prohibit children with molluscum contagiosum from swimming in public pools should be given careful consideration. Exclusion may interfere with much needed physical and social outlets as well as create social stigma. If such a policy were instituted, the diagnosis of molluscum contagiosum should be made by a health care provider and all participating children should be subject to the same screening physical exam.A thorough skin examination should be performed for other conditions such as atopic dermatitis. Thus, identification of molluscum lesions should not pose an undue burden during this process. Covering visible lesions with a watertight bandage, disposing of all bandages at home or in a health care setting, using good hand hygiene, ensuring that towels are not shared, and providing individual kick boards are all reasonable interventions to help prevent the spread of molluscum contagiosum and other infections acquired through contact exposures.As molluscum is caused by a virus, it is highly contagious and can infect human tissue virtually anywhere on the body. While molluscum contagiosum will eventually go away on its own without leaving a scar, many dermatologists advise treating. Treatment can prevent the growths from spreading to other areas of a patient’s body and to other people. Unfortunately, there are few adequate and non invasive molluscum treatments. Surgically removing molluscum or using acids for molluscum treatment are traumatic and not always effective.Natural molluscum treatment guarantees cure for molluscum contagiosum in children and adults. The certified organic medicinal plant extracts in natural treatment exhibit the highest level of antiviral activity against the molluscum virus. Natural molluscum treatment is composed of strictly certified organic medicinal plants used for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum and is doctor recommended. It eliminates molluscum anywhere on the body painlessly without scarring or tissue damage within days of application.Recent advances in the understanding of medicinal plants suggest a much broader use of natural treatment in the process of eradicating molluscum and infectious viral diseases. The lipophilic characteristic of natural molluscum treatment allows it to penetrate deeply. It is absorbed in the skin and into the system in trace quantities. Thus, natural treatment for molluscum not only has a direct virucidal effect, but provides total systemic support. When treating molluscum make sure to use treatments made from certified organic medicinal plant extracts. Only use of certified organic ingredients guarantees your safety.
