the NP at dermatology cryoed them, except the one on the palm of my hand

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
no they aren't itchy
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The NP said they are molluscum contagiosum, what i've read online indicates they are contagious so I have been using alot of bandaids. The Np said it wasn't necessary to cove them with band aids
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have been sleeping with nitrile gloves on because I am worried about spreading them.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have another issue I would like to discuss as well, the NP cryoed what she believed to be a wart in my belly button. I am a little worried about that, how could I get a wart in my belly button?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Are you there Dr?

I'm here--hold on

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
ok thanks

Which of these have been cryo'd?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
all of them were cryo'd except the one on the palm of my hand.
I should probably explain, the situation. About a month and a half ago I noticed i shared a keyboard with a coworker that touches her mouth alot. SO, i got worried and started paying attention to my hands, founds little odd bumps not sure how long they have been there.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
the one at the top of my index finger and middle finger were cryo'd, as well as the one on the tip of my middle finger. on my left hand in between my middle and index finger there was a different looking growth very small, the NP said it could be a wart and cryo'd it, it formed a blister.

OK

Yes they do look like molluscum but once they've been cryo'd they are not longer contagious--and they are only contagious with skin to skin contact

As for the art in your belly button, yes that can sometimes occur there but nothing serious

Please let me know if you need any more information

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
this on is on my left hand, it wasn't cryo'd

That really doesn't look like molluscum--just a small cyst

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I am wondering still a couple of questions, is it okay to sleep with the nitrile gloves?

Yes--that's fine

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
the ones that haven't been cryo'd, do they look like molluscum as well? The NP wasn't seen them yet
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
from what I understand, the molluscum virus clears the body completely over time, is that right?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
is it common for people to only have like four of the molluscum i'm pretty sure they were on my hands from a long time ago, why would it not spread?

Yes they do look like molluscum

Usually they clear on their own and the virus is gone at that point

They can appear in clusters but they don't always spread

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
can I do something to make the cryo'd parts heal faster? also how do I keep this conversation private?

I've just made the page private

Use some vitamin E cream on the cryo'd parts

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
