++MANAGING THE VIRUS++

UNFUN FACT:

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE MOLLUSCUM YOU CAN SPREAD IT TO OTHER PARTS OF YOUR BODY.

COVER MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM BUMPS.

Cover each bump to prevent the virus from spreading to other body parts.

This also discourages kids from scratching, poking, or opening them, which can spread the infection.

WASH HANDS FREQUENTLY.

Have kids wash their hands frequently (before and after going to the bathroom to avoid spreading the infection to their genitals).

WHY YOU SHOULD LEAVE THE BUMPS ALONE.

Because molluscum can be transmitted to other parts of the body picking at the bumps or opening them creates an opportunity for the virus to spread.
