Parents and relatives of children with molluscum are also very likely to catch molluscum. More than 40% of those with molluscum can identify a close friend or relative who is infected.14
Adults sometimes get molluscum contagiosum on the genitals, groin, thighs and stomach. This is because in adults molluscum can be a sexually transmitted disease (an STD or STI).1
Eczema, dermatitis and dry skin often occur with molluscum infection6 and it is this that some people notice first.
