Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

As per details, it may or may not be genital warts. I would like to know the following details :
1 ) are these bumps itchy/ painful or asymptomatic?
2) any history of similar lesions before ?
3) any history of warts before?

Kindly reply to my questions and attach a pic of the lesions so that I can actually visualise it and help you to my best.

Brief Answer:
molluscum contagiosum is the most likely possibili

Detailed Answer:
I have seen the attached pics. Thanks for attaching the pics.

It seems that you are suffering from a condition called molluscum contagiosum.
it is a viral infection of skin leading to formation of pearly white raised eruptions with central indentation with or without erythematous base.

The best treatment for this is removal of the molluscum bodies by needle extirpation by an expert dermatologist.

I will advice you to visit your dermatologist at the earliest and discuss this with him/ her. I am sure he/ she will agree with my opinion.
Good luck.

Hi, I'm a 24 year old male now. I have an itch around my genitals where my scrotal sack meets my left leg (as well as on the right side). For over ten years, I've had to use an anti-bacterial cream for it to keep away the itch and the bad smell that comes with it. When I don't use the cream, the area looks like the skin is peeling off, it itches and it smells. The condition has recently come back and isn't going away quickly even though I'm using the cream. What condition is this and what can I do to get rid of it? I really need some help. Thanks!

I am a 17 year old guy who had pain in my left testicle and abdomen about a month ago or a little longer. That pain went away after about 2 weeks but just recently I have noticed consistent discoloring in my scrotum, my left testicle has gotten bigger and is very hard while my right testicle has shrunk and is extremely soft and maybe even mushy. My semen has been coming out chunky, and my nipples are swollen and sore all the time. Please help I'm really worried

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

doctor1 MD

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

doctor1 MD

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
