My molluscum bump started oozing in the shower. I put alcohol and a bandaid on it. Now I have itchy red spots near it. Did it spread?

In brief: Possible

People with this skin disease can cause the bumps to spread to different parts of their body.
This is called autoinoculation. Such spread can occur by touching or scratching a bump and then touching another part of the body
