this may not be moles
moles usually would not occur like this
instead it sounds more like warts
warts occur due to a viral infection
have you had unprotected sexual exposure?
just a minute
there are three main conditions tthat this could be
one is a viral infection like warts as i said
secondly a fungal infection or fungal folliculitis
third is bacterial folliculitis
best option is to go to a doctor and get it treated
but if you want to try home treatment first there are a number of steps that you can take
You should try the following:
Neosporin ointment to apply locally in the areas.
this is available OTV, apply it once or twice daily
Anti-fungal plus antibacterial shampoos (available OTC) - shampoo very frequently.
thirdly, avoid using razors and use an electric shaver instead
this should get rid of the problem
however if you find that it still recurs, then you have to show a doctor
