Warts & Molluscum can be cumbersome viral skin infections that can persist for years without treatment.

Treatment of Warts
Warts are small, hard growths that can appear on any part of the body. They are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can be spread through direct contact with an infected person or surface. Warts can often be treated with topical medications, such as salicylic acid, which help to dissolve the wart tissue. In some cases, cryotherapy or surgical removal may be necessary to completely remove the wart.
Treatment of Molluscum Contagiosum
Molluscum Contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes small, raised bumps on the skin. These bumps often have a small indentation in the center and can be itchy or painful. Molluscum Contagiosum is caused by a poxvirus and can be spread through direct contact with an infected person or surface. Treatment may include topical medications, such as imiquimod or tretinoin, or physical removal of the bumps by a dermatologist using a variety of techniques, such as cryotherapy or curettage.
It is important to seek medical advice if you have a wart or molluscum contagiosum that is persistent, spreading, or accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or difficulty breathing.
