Question by GiGi: if i have molluscum contagiosum, will my partner have the same bumps and symptoms at the same time?
I just noticed the symptoms, ie: bumps. This is the first appearance of any. Will he have the same signs and symptoms at the same time OR will his show up later?

The virus commonly spreads through skin-to-skin contact. This includes sexual contact or touching or scratching the bumps and then touching the skin. Handling objects that have the virus on them, such as a towel, can also result in infection. The virus can spread from one part of the body to another or to other people. Molluscum contagiosum is contagious until the bumps are gone—which, if untreated, may be up to 6 months or longer.
