What is Molluscum Contagiosum?

Molluscum Contagiosum is a common human-to-human viral infection that affects the skin can causes small lesions/pustules. As the name suggests, it is very contagious. It has a higher incidence in children, sexually active adults, and those who are immune-compromised.

Molluscum Contagiosum (Muh lus´ kum + Kon tae-´ jee- O´ sum) is caused by a DNA virus of the Poxveridae family. On rare occasions it affects the mucus membranes (moist linings of the orifices and internal parts of the body). It is not found in animals or pets.

There are four strains of virus (MCV-1, 2, 3 and 4). MCV-1 is most common for children and MCV-2 is more common for adult infections.

The incubation period is generally between 2 and 8 weeks, but can take up to 6 months.

Most people can overcome Molluscum Contagiosum (MCV) without treatment in about 24 months, making it a very unpleasant disease to have, with high risk of infecting others. Many people in desperation often try ineffective alternatives or painful removal causing scarring, such as freezing, burning or applying blistering agents to each lesion. You will only overcome MCV when the lesions are gone.

Conzerol heals Molluscum Contagiosum (MCV) lesions and reduces further spreading. With Conzerol an infected person, child or adult, can be back to normal fast, instead of months with traditional invasive and painful alternatives.
