Warts

Warts are benign skin growths caused by one of the 60 subtypes of human papillomavirus. Warts commonly occur when you cut or damage your skin in some way, allowing the HPV virus to enter. Warts can be skin colored, discolored, raised or flat, and rough or smooth. They grow most frequently on the fingers, hands and feet, but can appear anywhere on your body. 

Molluscum
