Brief Answer:
Molluscum contagiosum, go for removal

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Health Care Magic

I have reviewed the attached photographs and according to me you have developed molluscum contagiosum.

It is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a virus.

If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to consult a dermatologist and get them removed.

Could this be caused by shaving more frequently as well. I just wanted to make sure it wasnt herpes or anything like that. Thank you for responding

Brief Answer:
Not related to shaving, it's not herpesvirus infection

Detailed Answer:
No it is not related to shaving.
It occurs as a sexually transmitted viral disease on the genitilia.
It is not herpes infection.
You should get it removed as it has a tendency to spread.
