Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

The pictures sent by you show multiple papular lesions (Bumps). All are solid lesions and they don't have any material inside. Papular lesions on genitals can be warts, molluscum contagiosum or Fordyce spots.

Going by the picture, it's not wart but other two possibilities can't be ruled out. A biopsy from one of the lesion can help in making a diagnosis.

In case the lesions are not increasing in size, the diagnosis is more in favor of fordyce spots.

Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks again for following up.

Fordyce spots don’t need any treatment. They are physiological findings found in every male and are non pathogenic.

Molluscum contagiosum needs to be removed by cautery- electro or chemical, cryotherapy or needle extraction. It’s a very common infection and is even common in children. In children they occur on face compared to the adult population where it is seen on genitals.

Hope you I have answered all your queries. Please accept my answer and oblige if you do not have any other queries.

Regards
