    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Molluscum Contagiosum

    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.
