Brief Answer:
Does not look like molluscum

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to healthcare magic.

I understand from your query that you are concerned about a lesion on your genitalia.

I have seen the pictures you have uploaded.

The lesion that you are concerned about does not seem to be molluscum.

It could be a slightly inflammed hair root which is common in the genitalia, especially if you are in the habit of shaving the hairs.

You could leave it alone or could apply an antibiotic cream containing 2% mupirocin twice a day for 3 days.

Hope this helps you.

If you have any further queries, I will be glad to assist.

Regards,
Dr. Johny Chacko

use of mupirocin ointment nasally
I am having I spinal fusion in the morning and was instructed to use mupirocin nasally prior to arrival. the mupirocin I received from the pharmacy is 2% ointment when I read the internal literature it said not to use in the nose but that there are nasal forms of the medicine. I think I tecieved the wrong stuff from the pharmacy that being said. should I still use it or wait and see what the doctor would like to do in the morning?

Can anything be done to get rid of crusty spots in my nostrils ? They are not sore and do not bleed, but they won't go away. My ENT doctor gave me Mupirocin ointment,, and I used it nightly for weeks on end finally giving up as it did nothing. My complaint with him was that had lost my sense of smell a couple of years ago. I cannot smell good or bad odors. After I had a nasal X-ray, he told me that my sinus passages were clear, and no infection. I have used over many years a OTC Nasal spray, and wondered if that has damaged my sense of smell ? I I live alone and have to triple check myself to make sure the gas jets on my stove are off. The Dr. said it would come back, but it is now 6 months later and still not a thing !Sue Cadman

I have a painful belly button. There is also a brownish discharge that takes about three hours to refill the cavity after cleaning it out. The discharge is extremely smelly and resembles a fecal odor. I also experience pain when the area around the belly button is palpated, primarily directly below. Two sores are now apparent in the cavity but were not there a week ago when the symptoms first appeared. The amount of discharge has been constant regardless of the presence of the sores. I do not have a fever. I've seen two doctors about this condition. One prescribed a topical cream called Mupirocin Ointment. The next prescribed an antibiotic pill called Sulfamethoxazole. Both have been ineffective at relieving any of the symptoms.
