Hello. I am a 45 yr old male. 5’11 and weight 180. I’ve felt some small bumps around anus. A little embarrassing. Not itchy but can feel them when I shower or take a bath. Took a picture can’t figure out what they are. Hope you can help

Hello. thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar (Dermatologist and Venerelogist). I have noted your concern.

I can see multiple, skin colored raised skin lesion around the anal opening. Perhaps those are perianal warts/ condyloma acuminata. Warts are an infection caused by HPV (Human papilloma virus).
Genital and perianal warts is considered an STD and the infection is usually acquired through sexual contact with an infectious sexual partner.

Brief Answer:
Remedy for Perianal warts

Detailed Answer:

I suggest either freezing with liquid nitrogen or Podophyllin topical application. I suggest that you visit a dermatologist in your region for the needful. Since genital or Perianal warts is an STD therefore you must also screen for other STDs like HSV, HIV, syphilis (vdrl/rpr) etc
