You receive a phone call from a mother of a 3-year-old who was diagnosed yesterday with molluscum contagiosum at a well-child visit. The mother was not at the visit and has questions about what type of treatment the child will need. Your best response is: a . There is low risk of communicability to others and the rash is self- limiting, so no treatment is necessary. b . The rash is highly contagious and the child should avoid contact with other children until the rash clears. c . Systemic involvement is common, so the child must be treated with oral antivirals like acyclovir.
