Detailed Answer:
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.
Stay healthy.

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.
