Taking treatment for molluscum contagiasum at genitals. Observed one more sore on testis. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Hi XXXXXXX good morning
today morning, i observed one more sore on my testis and im not sure whether its molluscum or not..
i can send u a mail showing an image of the same
You can mail it to YYYY@YYYY
sure, im sending it right away..so far, i have got the molluscum above penis, where the hair grows, and some small lesions on testis..
solution is applied to almost all of them, except this.. please have a look
Can you mention if there are any symptoms associated at the new spots?
And let me know when you have mailed the pictures.
i have mailed the picture sir
Give me a few minutes while I fetch the mail.
symptoms are like its 3/4th circle, having a follicle at the center, small hole like appearance in the center.. very tiny
did u happen to fetch the mail sir
I apologize for the delay.
I was able to view the pictures that you sent.
no problem sir
As the lesion is small and close to the hair follicle, I am unable to differentiate it between molluscum or reactive changes to TCA chemical.
A recurrent molluscum seems more likely.
I would suggest you to get back to your doctor. He can examine the lesion under broad light to look for clues.
once it outbreaks, how often does it spread to other surrounding areas?
ok, sure sir.. i will see the doctor
and decide about treating it with TCA or cauterizing it.
Molluscum is an infection which spreads by touch and contact.
As long as you are in physical contact with an active lesion you can have a recurrence.
Therefore it is very essential that we treat all individual lesions to eradicate the problem.
Make sure your family and close ones also looks for similar appearing lesions.
If any, they would also need to be treated to prevent recurrence.
Have you followed?
ok..as surrounding areas should be kept clean, im using an antifungal soap
im single now..
Molluscum is caused by a virus and antifungal preparations have no significant effects on it.
Perhaps the antifungal soap was prescribed to you to avoid fungal infection secondary to chemical application.
If your doctor did not prescribe the antifungals to you, you may discuss about using it further with your doctor.
Do you have any more questions?
sure sir, i will
after tca is applied, doc. suggested to apply fudic cream on that
at a later point, how can i clean that to re-apply the cream
i cannot touch them right?
Yes, avoid touching the lesions. You could spread it to other areas.
Fudic cream is an antibiotic cream prescribed to avoid bacterial contamination.
ok sir. I will take care
thanks for ur suggestions
Bacteria can spread easily on an infective lesion or on chemical subjected region. You can use a glove to apply the cream.
I hope all your questions are answered.
Do you have any more questions?
yes sir. i got all the answers
no sir. thank you
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
