This is Dr. David

if you shave your pubic region, this can often cause bumps from ingrown hair follicles and skin irritation.

you could be seeing normal hair follicles or infected hair follicles causing these bumps in your genital region.

on the elbow area, if the skin looks like chicken skin, you could be having Keratosis Pilaris which is a very common skin condition which causes chic***** *****ke skin with bumps on elbows.

I didn't shave for months until today since I didn't know what it was. I'm most certain it's not a ingrown hair since I have had those before. It almost looks like a blister and there's 2 of them. Was leaning more in the direction of molluscum, just unsure.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 7 months ago.

are the blisters painful?

painful ulcers or blisters can be a sign of genital herpes.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Painful to the touch, no. When I hit it with my shaver and it started bleeding, yeah that hurt. But, no pain urinating, no itching, I don't even notice they're there until I go to the bathroom and physically see it. I'll attach a picture.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 7 months ago.

they look like molloscum contagiosum.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
How did you arrive to that conclusion?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 7 months ago.

by how they look a they they have a small pore or head at the center of the raised spots.

they look like water warts as well like molloscum.

they don't look like herpes.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
you also ruled out genital warts as well?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
what type of treatments are available?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 7 months ago.

they don't look like genital warts

gential warts look like small cauliflowers under magnification.

melloscum contagiosum goes way on its own in 6-12 months

it is not a dangerous wart.
