Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
These dome shaped bumps are known as molluscum contagiosum.
This is caused by the pox virus.
This is a sexually transmitted disease or from direct skin to skin contact.
They can be treate by cryotherapy effectively.
Also salicylic acid 16.7% solution applied daily over the lesions may clear out in a week or so.
But do see your doctor first.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
