Molluscum contagiosum are small, up to a few millimeters of size, skin colored warts with a central dimple and may occur singularly of in groups affecting a single body site up to wide spread on the entire body. These warts are caused by a virus called poxvirus and can release hundreds of thousands of virus particles when squeezed or violated, spreading the viruses and causing new warts.
The warts themselves are not harmful to the health of the carriers and can even remit by itself. However, spontaneous remission is not reliable and other people can be infected with the virus if not treated. If someone touches such a wart, disinfection of the hands is recommended to avoid spread of the virus.
