I was dignosed with molloscum contagiosum 3 years ago, the outbreaks happen often, but they have lessened in intensity from the beggining (although they have been pretty steady for about the last year). Generally, I notice a muskish type smell and itch a little before and during an outbreak, but lately I've been getting the itch and the smell, but no outbreak. I've looked around the internet on this alot and have never heard of anyone talking about molluscum having a smell, so I'm confused. I've been checking myself very dilligently lately, and with the hot weather I've developed some type of rash on my inner thighs, could this be the source of the smell? Also, I've refrained from having sex since I got the molluscum, I've been dating someone casually lately, and I'm worried that I might give molluscum to her, can I spread this with when there are no bumps present, or if I have the itchy "pre outbreak feeling"? Finally, what can I do to rid myself of molluscum, I'm so tired of hearing that "it's no big deal and will go away", are there any pills or anything that will supress this thing?
Thanks for your help and sorry to ask so many questions.
