At American Skin Institute, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of molluscum contagiosum, a common viral skin infection that primarily affects children but can occur in adults as well. Molluscum contagiosum presents as small, raised bumps on the skin’s surface, typically appearing in clusters and sometimes accompanied by itching or redness. Our board-certified dermatologists provide thorough evaluations to confirm the diagnosis and determine the best treatment approach.

Treatment options for molluscum contagiosum at our office may include topical treatments, such as prescription medications or over-the-counter remedies, to help clear the bumps and prevent spread to other areas. In some cases, our dermatologists may recommend procedures such as cryotherapy (freezing), curettage (scraping), or laser therapy to remove the lesions effectively. We prioritize patient comfort and safety throughout the treatment process, ensuring minimal scarring and promoting skin healing.

If you or your child are dealing with molluscum contagiosum, trust American Skin Institute for expert care and personalized treatment plans. We are committed to helping you achieve clear, healthy skin and providing comprehensive support throughout your journey to recovery.
