Brief Answer:
Could be molluscum or warts, upload pictures

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
According to your complaints it could be molluscum contagiosum or warts.
Both are sexually transmitted viral infections.
I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.

My son had a bump on the ball of his foot that looked like a callous and it was hard to touch. I thought it was a plantar wart so I used wart remover on it. Last week it looked like there was something in it so I discontinued the wart treatment and today he was squeezing it with tweezers and it popped and brown pus and blood came out of it. I put a band aid and antibiotic ointment on it after I washed it out with peroxide. Anyone have any idea what this is?
