When an adult is infected with molluscum, it is sometimes found around the genital area. This is due to the transmission of the molluscum virus during sex. The virus is highly contagious and gets transmitted through direct skin contact.
The lesions near the genital area do not look any different than lesions that appear on other parts of the body. They are still raised on the skin, are flesh/pink in color and have a white, waxy center. They may appear in clusters or as a single lesion and are typically painless. At times, the lesions can become itchy or irritated. When this happens, it is important to avoid scratching the lesions as this can cause the virus to spread to other parts of the body.
Adults who are sexually active will likely want to have the lesions resolve as soon as possible. While lesions are on the body, you remain infected and can transmit the virus to another person. To clear up the molluscum in the genital area, there are many options. Some of these are painful and involve scraping and cutting of the lesions. These options can leave scarring or marks due to the procedure.
