Symptoms can appear 1 to 6 weeks after contact with the virus. They can occur a bit differently in each person. They can include bumps on the skin that are small and pink or skin-colored. The bumps may itch. They may be round like a dome, and then develop a sunken center. The bumps can form alone or in groups or clusters. The symptoms of molluscum contagiosum can seem like other health conditions. Make sure to see your healthcare provider for a diagnosis.
