Hi, thanks for posting

From the infomation provided by you , you may be having Multiple neurofibromas

they are genetically inherted, and are usually asymtomatic, and do no harm ,that is why they are left as such

they can cause anxiety and cosmetic concern , they can continue to increase in number.
there is no medicine to prevent its increase,

They can be removed surgically

you may refer a neurologist to confirm the diagnosis by an excision biopsy

Hope this answers your query
