Molluscum around genital area, sexually active. Can it spread by sexual intercourse or oral sex?

I have have molluscum around my genital area, not sure of how I got it, but I am sexually active and my partner doesn t have this or anything else. I recently got a check-up... and found out that I had molluscum. I have a simple question and that is, is it possible for my molluscum to spread to my partner by oral sex(a blowjob mainly) and or through sexual intercourse?

Hi,
Genital molluscum contagiousum is a sexually transmitted disease and can easily transmit through intimate physical contact.
The best way to treat it is to get it extracted.
One should not indulge in sexual activities till it is treated. However indulging in oral sex would not spread it to your partner.
Hope that answers your query.
