Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist and venereologist ). I have gone through your query and I have viewed the images.

I can see multiple raised lesions. They are probably fluid filled.
I request you to upload a few more images in better light so that I am able to visualize them better.
I would like to know the duration since you noticed them?
Do you have any symptoms like pain?burning? Itching?
Are you sexually active?

The camera isn't great, I'm afraid.
I noticed them maybe yesterday. No pain, no burning, no itchiness.
Yes, I'm sexually active.

Brief Answer:
Possibility of genital molluscum contagiosum

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the Images

I can make out a few dome shaped lesions though the images are not very clear.
I would keep a possibility of Genital Molluscum Contagiosum which presents as pearly white, dome shaped, umblicated lesions, asymptomatic lesions.
It is an infection caused by molluscum contagiosum virus. The infection is transmitted through skin to skin contact during sexual intercourse.

Brief Answer:
Treatment options for genital molluscum

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Molluscum are clinically distinctive and the diagnosis is clear cut on clinical examination of patient. The lesions are dome shaped, asymptomatic, pearly white lesions with a central dent which is very characteristic of molluscum lesions.
Treatment for molluscum is with either electrofulguration or with needle extraction of molluscum bodies. A doctor would do it for you.

And that is necessary? All the information I can find say they're harmless and will just fade over time. But you're saying they need active treatment?

Are there any actions I need to take, or avoid taking?

For how long are they contagious? Assuming they still are.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Molluscum Contagiosum

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Genital molluscum may increase in number. Shaving pubuc hair can encourage spread to surrounding skin. Molluscum might reduce or disappear over time but this time period is often very long and most individuals prefer some form of active treatment.
They can be passed on to your sexual partners through skin to skin contact during intercourse. They are contagious as long as they are there.

I am 21 years old. I had unprotected sex with a woman who I thought was clean. It has been a year since then, and have gotten tested twice for the basic stds. Nothing. I have had symptoms for the entire year and have felt like there is something wrong for the entire year. My current state is constipation , it is very dry and it is very difficult. I also have absolutely no sex drive, my testicles are almost always in some kind of discomfort or pain, and I have abdominal pain as well. My erections are not as strong and in general it does not feel the same as it used to. I believe I have HSV-1 on my genitals as I received oral sex from the same woman who had a cold sore . No outbreaks of that ever. What can I do?

I have a 'pimply' penis head. the skin on the head itself looks wrinkled too. This is not its usual 'look' and have noticed it since being cleared of gonorrhea . I have been tested and cleared of all stds. I have also used an antifungal cream prescibed by my GP which has reduced the redness of the pimples only - but they are still there. I have no irratation from it.

Hello. I have a concern. I am allergic to an over the counter medication called Flanax. Everytime I take it my eyes and mouth swell up. The swealling in my mouth is so bad that I get blisters after the swealling comes down. My eyes get really dry and itchy. The weird thing is that it gets red right under the clitoris and irritated. I took Aleve a couple days ago without knowing I was going to have the same reaction. Its really irritated under the clitoris again. I been to the doctor and they don t find anything wrong. I been tested for STDs and I don t have any. This only happens to me when I drink that medication. Its has antiinflamatory on the label. I notiiced the pills are always a light blue color. I try to avoid them but I never thought I would have that reaction with Aleve aswell. My doctor gave me yeast infection medication. I just don t get a clear answer everytime I go to the Dr. I am worried it could be something else and not showing up in the boold work. The sensation I get is a tingling around my eyes and mouth and starts getting red after 30 minutes to an hour after drinking the pill. I just want a different opinion please. I only get like this when I drink that and my main concern is in the vagina or under the clitoris
