Tiny pink genital bumps

timmikle posted:
I have a number of very tiny pink bumps around the base of my penis. They are less than a millimetre in size and are hardly noticeable, but have begun to worry me. I started to notice them about two weeks ago. They are painless, and would itch occasionally until I started using hydrocortisone a few days ago. They cannot be popped. From what I can tell it doesn't seem to be warts or herpes... but just hoping there is a way to clear them up, and clear my mind.

Sounds like Molluscum Contagiom and this will clear up on its own and you will not have recurrent infection. You can pass this to your partners, so you either can remain sexually inactive for 6 months or have them treated via laser ablation/needle and/or cream that your doctor can prescribe.

Thanks so much for your reply. This is what I've been told it probably is but I wanted to make sure. There is also a very small one on the head, would this occur with Molluscum? I will go to my doctor to make sure, thanks again.

Yes it can occur anywhere. No problem. Good-luck.

Here is a photograph. They haven't been spreading for about a week now since I started using tea tree oil. I haven't been able to get to the doctor yet and I am still worried about the possibility of HPV.

Very characteristic of MC, I wouldn't worry about HPV. I do not know anything about tree oil usage. The quicker you see your doctor the quicker you can start topical treatment and thus achieve quicker resolution. Without treatment, like I said, you will wait for your body's immune response to alleviate the problem which usually occurs within 6 months. See your Primary care, or dermatologist.
