Once I am cured can I be reinfected with molluscum contagiosum?

What is Molluscum?Yes. Just because you have beat molluscum once does not mean that you will be immune in the future. You can still contract the virus over and over. Some people think that the virus lays dormant in the body and then comes back after some time but this is a myth. It is not like herpes and other viral diseases. If you have a re-occurrence of molluscum it is because you have become re-infected by coming in contact with an infected person or object.
