Molluscum Contagiosum Prevention Singapore

Molluscum Contagiosum Prevention in Singapore: Molluscum contagiosum is a minor skin infection caused by a virus. Small bumps appear on the skin, anywhere on the body.

Prevention/Vaccination

There is no vaccine against MCV, and there is currently no major attempt to develop such a vaccine, as there is no serious damage caused by molluscum contagiosum.

To prevent the spread of MC, avoid touching the skin of a person who has the condition. If the infected person has MC around the genital area, this would include touching the person’s genitals with any part of your body, because the virus can live on any part of your skin, not just on the genitals. Sex is not required to transmit molluscum contagiosum. Using a condom provides only partial protection, because any parts of the skin not covered by the condom are still able to transmit the virus.

If you have sexually transmitted MC, it may be an indication that you should get tested for the presence of other, more dangerous, sexually transmitted infections.
