Warts & Molluscum Facts

Warts and molluscum are very common viral infections of the skin. Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus and molluscum is caused by a poxvirus — both are spread via skin-to-skin contact. The virus infects only skin cells and does not go into the blood or saliva. Most people will be exposed to both viruses by adulthood.

Where do warts and molluscum occur?

Warts most often occur on the hands and feet, but they can occur anywhere on the body. Warts appear as thick, rough bumps. Molluscum can occur on any part of the skin and appear as pink, translucent or skin-colored bumps with a white core.

Are warts and molluscum contagious?

Both warts and molluscum are contagious and can spread from person to person or to other areas of skin on the same person if there is prolonged skin to skin contact.

Visit a wart treatment specialist at Greater Miami Skin & Laser Center for an evaluation of your molluscum contagiosum, warts, or HPV, and to learn more about your treatment options from our skin experts.
