Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Can you please describe the size, shape, color, and location of the bumps for us? Also, do they itch, hurt?
It sounds like "Flat Warts". They are small flesh colored bumps that usually appear on the neck, sometimes on the face. They are not dangerous, are caused by a virus, usually do not cause any symptoms other than the way the look, they frequently resolve (go away) on their own after a few months, with no treatment. A Dermatologist can remove them if you are impatient, but that is expensive. Over the counted "wart" medicines should not be used (wrong kind of "wart"), it will just really irritate your skin.
That would be very unusual. Do you frequently wear costume jewelry where it is occurring?
OK, good it is not an allergy. In general, leaving them alone and waiting for them to resolve spontaneously is the best approach.
Wash with a regular soap, but do not scrub excessively. Go about your normal routine, as if it was not there.
I have just joined this site myself, so I'm not sure how to post pictures yet. Maybe the moderator can help?? A picture would certainly be worth a thousand words!
Awesome! Great picture, dermatology textbook quality!
That makes it very easy, you have a small patch of a viral wart-like eruption called "Molluscum Contagiosum". We usually see it in children, but it certainly can occur in adults.
Here's a link to some nice information on the Mayo Clinic Website. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/molluscum-contagiosum/DS00672
Basically, be patient and leave it alone and it will go away, if you want to pay to have them removed sooner, it's easy, but costly.
No. That only applies to lesions on the genitals. This is a common, self-limiting process. 50/50 he gave it to you!
