Thanks for your query

You seem to be having lesions of molluscum contagiosum
Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a viral infection of the skin.This common viral disease has a higher incidence in children, sexually active adults, and those who are immunodeficient.

Molluscum contagiosum lesions are flesh-colored, dome-shaped, and pearly in appearance.
They are often 1–5 millimeters in diameter, with a dimpled center.
They are generally not painful, but they may itch or become irritated
These lesions are very contagious ,so early and proper treatment is very essential
Treatment options include application of agents like retinoic acid ,chemical cautery, electric cautery or mechanical curettage..
So i would advise you to visit a dermatologist soon for proper treatment as such lesions tend to increase if not treated on time as these are very contagious

Hope it helps
