Molluscum contangiosum scab- came off prematurely

Patient: I recently received hydrochloric acid treatment for a bump on my penis that looked like molluscum contangiosum. It has been almost a week, and the scab fell off prematurely in the shower. The area around the bump is red and smooth, but the bump is still there and visible. Should I receive another treatment, or will the bump scab up again and fall off on its own?Thank you
