Molluscum Contagiosum Introduction

Molluscum contagiosum is the name of a virus that causes a common skin infection of the same name. The infection can develop in children and adults. The virus is spread by skin-to-skin contact or by contact with an object with the virus on it, such as a used towel or washcloth. Symptoms of molluscum include small, skin-colored growths on the skin. Molluscum contagiosum usually resolves on its own without complications after a number of months. Treatment is recommended to get rid of growths in the genital area. Treatment for molluscum in other areas is optional, and may be performed to prevent spread to new areas on the skin.

Ankle Sprains

What happens when a person sprains his or her ankle? — When a person sprains his or her ankle, the ankle joint turns too far in a particular direction. Inside the ankle are tough bands of tissue called ligaments, which hold the different bones together. During a sprain, one or more of those ligaments stretch too far or even tear. This can cause pain and swelling, make the ankle unsteady, and make it hard to put weight on the ankle.

What are the symptoms of ankle sprain? — The symptoms can include pain, tenderness, swelling, and bruising at the ankle. Some people with an ankle sprain also find it hard to move the foot in certain directions. Plus, some people cannot put weight on the ankle.

Is there a test for ankle sprain?— Yes and no. A doctor or nurse should be able to tell if you have a sprain by doing an exam and learning about what happened to your ankle. He or she might move your foot in different directions to see what hurts and to check how loose your ankle feels. In some cases, a doctor or nurse might order an X-ray to check for broken bones, but that is not always needed.
