Hi
Thanks for being at Health Care Magic
I am Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist.

I have reviewed the attached photographs though they are not very clear.
There are 2 possibilities: either molluscum contagiosum which is a viral infection or ingrown hair.
You need to consult a dermatologist and get it examined clinically to confirm the diagnosis.

Please let me know if there's any further queries.
