I have small skin colored bumps on the backs of my hands

Customer Question

I have small skin colored bumps on the backs of my hands they don't itch, they don't hurt, and they are hard to see unless the light is hitting them just right.

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Can you upload a picture of the rash?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's not a rash. I will try.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
You kind of see three of them by the crease near my wrist. They are really hard to see let alone get a picture of. They are barely raised.
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 2 months ago.

I'm sorry, I'm having a hard time seeing it.

Is there another picture with better lighting?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I tried to circle a few of them
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 2 months ago.

Thanks for identifying them!

That's a big help.

They look like small warts which are just starting out.

I would use compound W which is over the counter to get rid of them.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

I've had them for years and they aren't just on my hands they don't seem to grow at all.
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 2 months ago.

There are types of warts known molluscum contagiosum which often time stay for years before they resolve.

If they change in size, shape or color then it's time to have them checked.

I can't really do anything about them ? Compound W on every spot they are doesn't sound feasible
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 2 months ago.

You can have them frozen off by a dermatologist if you want.
