In brief: Consult/Treatment

After consulting with a physician, molluscum contagiosum may be treated according to his underlying immunologic state.
With a normal immune system, the lesions may resolve without treatment. Lesions may be removed surgically by freezing, electrosurgery, or via curette. Medications may be recommended and may be applied by the doctor or at home by the patient.
