Water warts (Molluscum contagiosum) are a infectious but benign skin ailment. The warts or jelly like spots, described by Wikipedia as flesh-colored, dome-shaped and pearly lesions, are especially common under children below the age of five. Also people with reduced immunity and risky sexual behavior (e.g. HIV positive people) have an increased risk for this viral infection. An individual water wart disappears spontaneously without leaving scars within 2 months. But because there are multiple warts in different stages of healing, the total duration can be up to 6 months or even several years.
