How Do I Detect Molluscum Warts in Children?

Are you concerned that your child has molluscum contagiosum? Have you noticed some strange looking bumps on your child’s face, arms or legs, and you’re looking for answers?

Molluscum warts in children have very distinctive characteristics.

Molluscum contagiosum is highly contagious, and is spread easily in children. If you suspect your child has molluscum contagiosum (MCV), you should contact your doctor. And to help you prepare for your appointment, here are some of the definitive characteristics of molluscum warts in children:

  • Small in size – Most MCV warts (also called “lesions” or “papules”) are between 2 and 5mm in diameter. Larger papules can occur; however, if you notice several clusters of smaller-looking warts on your child, it could be a case of MCV.
  • Round and dome-shaped – Molluscum contagiosum warts in children are round, and have a dome-shaped top that makes them look fairly distinctive.
  • Pink and waxy – MCV lesions are typically pink or skin-colored, and they have a waxy appearance. A curdy, white material can be found at the center of each lesion.
  • Center indentation – Molluscum contagiosum warts can also be identified by a small indentation at the center of each lump.
  • Appearance across the body – Molluscum contagiosum in children can appear across the body. They can be found on the legs, torso, arms, neck, head and genital area.

    I have a question? What does the skin look like during treatment? My daughters bumps are bleeding. Is this normal?

    • MolluscumRx says:

      No, it is not normal. Typically the bumps will turn red and then scab up, then fall off. If your daughter is picking at the lesions this could cause them to bleed. I suggest you give us a call, 407-850-5599, to discuss what’s going on.

    My daughters bumps have turned red and scabbed, just wondering how much longer it needs to be treated?

    • MolluscumRx says:


      Typically it takes around two weeks to resolve once you see scabbing.

      Just keep putting the MolluscumRx on until they are gone. This will help prevent spreading of the lesions.

    My daughter has been diagnosed with mc and had an infected area that is clearing up, but there is a large patch on her bottom that looks like a cluster, possibly eczema on top but it looks black/purple in color as of this morning, is this normal?

    • MolluscumRx says:

      There is no normal when it comes to molluscum. The virus will have a different impact on each person.

      The only real way is to let her doctor take another look to make sure you know what you are dealing with.
