In brief: Molluscum
The virus that causes molluscum is spread from person to person by touching the affected skin.
The virus may also be spread by touching a surface with the virus on it, such as a towel, clothing, or toys. Once someone has the virus, the bumps can spread to other parts of their body by touching or scratching a bump and then touching another part of the body.
