Day #43 Molluscum Contagiosum
Molluscum Contagiosum is a poxvirus most common in children and in AIDS (First Aid Sign) patients. The rash is composed of tiny wax (wax bar) papules and can be stained with Giemsa of Wright’s (white wax bar) stain. Diagnosis, however, is usually by clinical picture. Treatment includes curetting, freezing, and tichloroacetid acid.
