i just learned about Molluscum today... please help! It's kind of complicated... =(

I recently rekindled a relationship with my boyfriend from 2.5 years ago. Tonight he told me that he is experiencing the same symptoms that he did right after we had broken up (which he had never told me about until now). We had previously dated for about a year and the entire time neither of us had ever experienced this "molluscum." He told me that just after we broke up he had these symptoms and the doctor told him it was molluscum and they were "burnt" off and he has not seen them since (2.5 yrs). I have NEVER experienced these symptoms and neither have any of the people I have had relationships with before or after this earlier relationship. We restarted our relationship about a month ago and the first few times we had sex there were no signs, but this past weekend we slept together and the next day he says the same bumps appeared, so he is very sure it is coming from me. He has had 4 short term partners since our last relationship and i have had the same, but none of mine experienced this and he didnt get it after any of his other partners. So now we are both under the impression that I may be a carrier with a good immune system and he may have a weaker than normal one. Do you have any insight on this? Sadly, he is so uncomfortable with this molluscum that he says if it is coming from me that he may not be able continue our relationship.

Is there any way to really know what is going on?
