May be immune : Molluscum contagiosum are caused by the molluscipox virus. Many people are exposed in childhood via swimming in pools or from other children. In many cases, the virus clears on it's own and the person develops an immunity to the virus which can last decades. If you do not develop any lesions in the next few months, then you may be immune. If you develop lesions, they can be treated with freezing.
