Can I still shave if I have molluscum contagiosum?

Molluscum

Molluscum_contagiosum
The virus lives only in the skin and once the growths are gone, the virus is gone and you cannot spread the virus to others. Molluscum contagiosum is not like herpes viruses, which can remain dormant (“sleeping”) in your body for long periods and then reappear. So, assuming you do not come in contact with another infected person, once all the molluscum contagiosum bumps go you are not contagious

How can you get rid of molluscum contagiosum at home?

Molluscum

Molluscum_contagiosum
This is caused by a pox virus. It is contagious from person to person by direct contact, sharing towels, sharing bathwater, or even from swimming in the same pool. The condition is self-limited and goes away without treatment, although it can take many months. One can pick the bumps off, by stretching the skin tight between two fingers first, and removing the little ball inside.
