What is molluscum contagiosum?

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) and warts are both skin growths that commonly affect children, but they are caused by completely different viral strains. MC is caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus, while warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Both viruses are contagious and can easily spread, but whereas most people are resistant to the MC virus, this is not the case with HPV.
