Brief Answer:
Molluscum contagiosum

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I read history and saw photos.Your friend who is a medical student is right. You seem to have molluscum contagiosum. It is a viral infection caused by pox virius. There may be multiple whitish,umbilicated,pearl like papules. It is a chronic infection and may persist for few months to few years. It is a contagious disease.

You consult dermatologist. Thorough examination and investigations may be done by him. Other diseases like HIV should be ruled out. In some cases, doctors do not treat as selfhealing may be there in few months. But I always insist for the immediate treatment,as it might spread further in patient as well as in other family members.

There are many treatment options.It may be removed by electrocautery under local anaesthesia. Cryotherapy and laser therapy are another methods. Chemicals like salicylic acid 12% may be applied on the lesions. I usually prefer electrocautery in my patients having such disease.Treatment should be aimed to prevent further transmission and autoinoculation.

I hope this would be helpful to you. Still, any query..you may ask.

Thanks and have early recovery.
