Molluscum Contagiosum
An_255682 posted:
I was not sure where else to ask this question so I decided to ask here. My friend has been recently diagnosed with molluscum contagiosum and the lesions are on his face. I mistakenly drank after him and am wondering if there is any chance I could get the virus? I have a good immune system with no history of HIV, cancer treatments, or any other STDs

Thank you!

This can be passed by touching the affected area, not by drinking after someone who has these lesions.
