Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
According to your complaints it could be epidermoid cysts or molluscum.

I'm not sure how to upload pictures, but in either case would your diagnosis require any treatment?

Brief Answer:
Upload pictures under report section or mail them

Detailed Answer:
You can upload the pictures either under the report section or mail them to YYYY@YYYY as " Attention: Dr Asmeet ".
In case of epidermoid cysts you can leave it as such but molluscum will require treatment.

Brief Answer:
Seems to be angiokeratoma, no need to worry

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the attached photographs and it seems to be angiokeratomas.
These are benign vascular tumours and you don't have to worry about them.
You can leave them as such or get them removed by electrocautery.
