Facts About Molluscum Contagiosum:

Molluscum contagiosum virus should only be diagnosed by a certified medical practitioner. It is often confused with warts, rash and other skin disorders.

Molluscum Contagiosum Fast Facts:

  1. Diagnosis is often visually determined by practicioner. (small flesh colored, dome-shaped, umbilicated lesions)
  2. Molluscum contagiosum occurs worldwide.
  3. The incubation period is generally between 2 and 7 weeks.
  4. 1% of diagnosed skin disorders are a result of the Molluscum Contagiosum Virus.
  5. MCV lesions, on children, occur on the face, trunk, and extremities.
  6. In adults, the genital region (sex organs, lower abdomen and inner thigh) are most commonly affected.
  7. Soles and palms are unaffected by lesion eruptions
  8. Molluscum can take several months or years to resolve spontaneously without treatment
  9. Transmission requires direct skin contact with infected individuals or fomites (contaminated objects) such as towels, pool furniture or other surfaces.
  10. Immunocompromised patients may develop large lesions (15mm).
  11. Abrasion from scratching or shaving can autoinoculate (self transmit) the virus from one part of the body to another.
  12. Curettage (surgical removal) can cause trauma to the skin resulting in permanent scarring, secondary infections and further spreading of lesions.
  13. The pustule core (acne-like) of the lesion contains the virus.
  14. By destroying the virus containing pustule core, the molluscum infection ceases.

How is Molluscum Contagiosum Spread?
The Molluscum contagiosum virus is transmitted from the infected skin of one person with lesions (often referred to as “warts”) to the skin of another person. Molluscum contagiosum often spreads among siblings and children because they have close skin-to-skin contact as they interact. Molluscum contagiosum can also be sexually transmitted if lesions occur on or near the genital area. Molluscum contagiosum can be contracted from objects like towels and clothing, though that is not nearly as common as skin-to-skin transference. Molluscum contagiosum is often spread between children around swimming facilities.

How Long Will the Molluscum Last?
Molluscum contagiosum will eventually go away on its own without leaving scars (provided the lesions are not scratched or infected by other, more damaging infections). The infected person tends to spread lesions from one part of the body to another, so as one group of lesions subsides another group may begin to form. This sometimes causes the person carrying the virus to cope with the Molluscum contagiosum lesions from six months up to five years before they go away. They can be much more persistent and numerous (in lesion count) on people with a weaker immune system.

What options do I have?

  1. You may wait for eights months to five years avoiding others so you don’t pass the virus around.
  2. A doctor could burn, freeze or scoop them out. A very costly option which may leave scarring.
  3. Use Conzerol and have the lesions start to disappear in 12-15 days (results may vary).
Most Common Molluscum Contagiosum Questions

Can Conzerol be used for other skin problems?

Conzerol® is being evaluated for other uses. Currently, it is used only for Molluscum Contagiosum.

How does it work?

Humans have defense mechanisms to counter harmful microorganisms but can sometimes need help. There are compounds found in nature that are effective for human use in battling microbial infections. Conzerol® has botanical antiviral compounds that quickly inhibits the MC virus, and by doing so it prevents it from spreading, allowing your immune response to overcome the MC virus faster.

Will the lesions return?

When the lesions are treated with Conzerol and are gone, you are no longer contagious. Never-the-less, you are not necessarily immune to Molluscum Contagiosum (MCV). You can acquire it again from a carrier, but this is quite rare under normal circumstances.

Why hasn’t my physician heard of Conzerol?

Conzerol® is a recent formulation of special antiviral compounds found in nature. Conzerol® cream has recently been registered with the FDA and will start showing up in more doctor’s office. You can help spread the word by sharing your testimony with your physician.

If I am HIV positive, can I use Conzerol?

Conzerol has great success with many immune-compromised sufferers. In HIV patients, the spreading of Molluscum Contagiosum (MCV) is much higher than with others, sometimes requiring extended period for Conzerol to resolve all lesions.

Is Conzerol FDA Registered?

Yes Conzerol® is registered with the FDA, unlike many other molluscum products. Conzerol® abides by all requirements set forth by Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS) –standard for the FDA.
