Brief Answer: Asymptomatic bumps over pubic area Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Welcome to healthcare magic, From your description I am thinking of the possibilities of skin tags or genital warts. Skin tags are harmless growths. Genital warts however are caused by human papilloma virus which is sexually transmitted. There are other conditions like seborrhoeic keratosis or even moles which fit your description. The best thing you can do is to upload a photograph.You have a feature to upload the images by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your query better.

Brief Answer: Benign swellings Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome back, They look like dermatosis papulosa nigra. They are benign skin growths. These are not genital warts. Do you have these lesions elsewhere ? Over the face ? These can be cauterized by electrosurgery or radio frequency under topical anesthesia by a dermatologist if you want it removed. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any clarifications I will be happy to help. Take care.
