What are these little red bumps. They 't itch but I have

Customer Question

What are these little red bumps. They don't itch but I have them on both hands. A few on each. I squeezed the one next to my ring finger and clear stuff and blood came out. Does it look cancerous

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Thanks. No, it's not cancer. These are call molluscum contagiosa and they're cousins of the common warts that people get on their fingers. Nothing serious and they usually resolve on their own in anywhere from a week to a month

Let me know if you need any more information please

Can they sometimes itch or sensitive to the touch after scratching

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Yes they can and if they bother you they can be cryofrozen with liquid nitrogen by a dermatologist
