We have had some instances of the above viral infection amongst children in school. MC is generally a harmless condition that normally gets better in a few months, without any specific treatment. It is common for the condition to spread around the body and can take up to 18 months or more to clear completely. If your child does have this virus, please ensure the affected areas are completely covered whilst in school. The only symptom of MC is a number of small, firm raised spots with a characteristic small dimple in the middle, which aren't painful, but may be itchy. Please see your GP if you notice any spots associated with MC.
