Molluscum contagiosum. Lesions on the skin of an adult male patient, caused by a molluscum contagiosum poxvirus infection. This condition is usually harmless, and affects children more commonly than adults. The raised areas (papules) produce a cheesy fluid and a crust forms before healing occurs. The condition usually clears up in a few months but may require medical treatment in extreme cases. The disease is highly contagious through skin contact with the affected area.
