Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
Molluscum are warts that are easily transmitted via direct skin to skin contact (do not require unprotected penetration). They are not necessarily sexually-transmitted, and can be found on the hands, buttocks, abdomen and face - in addition to the obvious genital regions. Avoid manipulating or toying with these lesions, as they can become infected - or worse, may multiply from auto-contamination (you spread them from one place to another on yourself). As your physician will inform you - do not shave infected skin! Shaving infected areas increases your risk of spread and auto-contamination, in addition to increasing your risk of the lesions becoming infected.
