Our expert says:
The name of the infection is molluscum contagiosum and is caused by a virus. Eczema may be present in the vicinity of the lesions. Persons with asthma/hay fever/eczema are more prone to develop the lesions. The following treatment methods are available: freezing with liquid nitrogen, removal with a needle, cantharadin liquid, potassium hydroxide liquid, and imiquimod=Aldara. There is no scientific evidence for the superiority of one of these treatments. Keep in mind that lesions may also disappear spontaneously. There you have it. See your doctor.
