The molluscum Contagiosum is transmitted by the infected epithelial cells and the cells of inclusion which are hangar when small the papules break. Do not share clothing not washed. It is almost a guarantee of transmission. Apparently this disease is transmitted most frequently by the skin in contact with skin, so that several of the questions which you increase are not likely to be an important problem. However, I would urge that you obtain them treated since they can draw aside and cause uncomfortable pustular answers. Viral inclusions are apparently very sensitive to drying so that inanimate objects others that clothing which dried during several hours are probably noninfectious. The seats of toilet are seldom vector of this infection. I would propose that you wash your bath-tub with a detergent of cleaning of strong bathroom in order to reduce the chance of the transmission to the minimum.

Sometimes crying or laughing
