Customer Question
trip and molluscum appeared in...
My wife has had multiple affairs, and recently we took a trip and molluscum appeared in her vaginal area. It appeared 3 days after she claims to have contracted it from an airplane toilet seat that had some wetness on it she didn’t notice. This seemed a little odd, but she does have mild eczema. She recently had an affair with a new person so I’m not sure I can trust the story. Could you tell me the likelihood of contracting molluscum from a toilet seat with an outbreak occurring in a matter of days? Does this happen?
JA: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?
Customer: I’m a guy, but she hasn’t ever told me about something occurring on her Pap smear.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Just the eczema

Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your situation. Actually the AVERAGE incubation period for molluscum is between 2-7 WEEKS, this means it would take a minimum of 2 weeks from the time the virus enters the body to when it shows up as the characteristic lesion.

Now regarding whether it can be spread via toilet seats, the answer is yes, molluscum in one of the few organisms which can be spread via inanimate objects like toilet seats HOWEVER i wouild stress that the rate of transmission via DIRECT skin to skin contact is much higher than the rate of transmission via inanimate objects like toilet seats. But it is certainly possible. However it is not possible for the virus to be acquired by the body and then sprout a lesion within 3 days. That is too short of a time, the shortest incubation period mentioned in literature is one week. But as i said the usual timeframe is between 2-7 weeks.

So in short, Yes it is possible to acquire the virus from the toilet seat BUT it is NOT likely that it would express itself within 3 days.

Do you have any more questions?
