    Molluscum Contagiosum Treatment - Ayurvedic and Natural

    Molluscum contagiosum is a common self-limiting and painless viral skin infection caused by the pox virus, a DNA virus. This viral infection is more common in children than in adults. The lesions are usually multiple, waxy with an average diameter of 5mm and commonly affected sites are the face and trunk. Fully developed lesions give out waxy exudates on pressing. This infection is spread by direct contact with the affected person or by touching articles contaminated by virus and lesions process eosinophilic inclusion bodies collect molluscum bodies which in turn possess numerous viral particles.
