Should I try to remove the bumps caused by molluscum?

0

It is not a good idea to try to remove the molluscum growths or to get rid of the fluid inside them yourself. Be aware that some treatments available through the internet are not effective and may even be harmful! There are three important reasons not to treat the bumps without seeing a doctor first. • The treatment may be painful. • You might spread the bumps to another part of your body or to another person. • By scratching and scraping the skin you might cause a more serious bacterial infection. If you want to have the growths removed or treated, talk to a health care provider. Molluscum bumps usually will disappear without treatment in 6 to 12 months and not leave scars, but it may not go away completely for up to 4 years.
