Water wart (Mollusca Contagiosa)

Water warts are caused by a different virus, called the Molluscum Contagiosum Virus (MCV). This virus is a member of the poxvirus group and causes clusters of warts on the body, arms and legs. They are skin coloured, pink or white pearl and gloss with a dimple on top. When pressed, a white substance emerges. Mollusca are annoying, unsightly and cause itching. The virus is very contagious and most frequently occurs in children and in adults with an impaired immune response.
