The views expressed by me are for educational purposes only and do not establish a doctor patient relationship.

mysticdoc :

Hello,


Thanks for your question.


The bumps on the scrotum is caused by the deposited keratin in the hair follicles.

mysticdoc :

This is a common finding and not concerning.

mysticdoc :

Since your doctor thinks these are not warts, do not worry about them.

mysticdoc :

You can try topical salicylic acid 1-2% solution --apply over them daily--may help over 2-3 weeks.

mysticdoc :

Please avoid burning your skin --so dilute with water if you get stinging feeling on application of salicylic acid.

mysticdoc :

Best wishes,
