Warts are small lumps that often develop on the skin of the hands and feet. Warts vary in appearance and may develop singly or in clusters. Some are more likely to affect particular areas of the body.
Ringworm and other fungal infections NHS
Ringworm is a common fungal infection that can cause a red or silvery ring-like rash on the skin. Ringworm commonly affects arms and legs, but it can appear almost anywhere on the body. Despite its name, ringworm doesn't have anything to do with worms

Molluscum contagiosum NHS
Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a viral infection that affects the skin. It most commonly affects children, although it can occur at any age. Usually, the only symptom of MC is a number of small, firm, raised papules (spots) that develop on the skin. They are not painful, but can be itchy.
Moles are small coloured spots on the skin made up of cells called melanocytes, which produce the colour (pigment) in your skin. The scientific name for moles is melanocytic naevi.
Lipomas are soft, fatty lumps that grow under the skin. They're harmless and can usually be left alone if they're small and painless. Lipomas are non-cancerous (benign) and are caused by an overgrowth of fat cells.
