Can a treatment to remove molluscum in genital area cause an outbreak in an hsv-2 positive person?

In brief: Likely not

While skin injury (like a sunburn) can lead to a recurrent bout of herpes, molluscum treatment is not likely too so.
That being said I am sure there may be some reports of just that in the medical literature. Still, it is not a common occurrence.
