Question by Elizebeth C: had molluscum contagiosm for over a year no treatment should i be worried? please answer!?
i am 16 and i think i have molluscum.
i have had molluscum longer then a year.
it is a greyish/ skin coloring with that little hole/ indent on it and does not hurt me.
it has not spread or grown its only gotten smaller.
i’ve never seen a doctor.
its only swelled when it was irritated.
its located in my groin area and that is about it.
my boyfriend of 8 months have not shown anything. and i had this about 7 months before we started becoming sexually active.
i used to tan naked in a salon and i play lacrosse and i shave down there every 3 days and i always scrub down there.
should i be worried?
and what should i do about it?
is it really molluscum? should i continue leaving it alone?
i always have protected sex.
oh and i only have one bump nothing else( sorry just wanted to make that clear.)sorry to sound annoying
Answer by Stephen
Molluscum are caused by virus. They can be treated but often resolve by themselves.
If they worry you get them treated otherwise are likely to go eventually
