HI

This is doctor Thomas again.

did you look at the link I sent you?

Did it match?

Pimples, warts and musculosum also would need to be ruled out.

You can attach them here.

Or you can have customer service send them to me directly.

[use the paper clip icon to attach.]

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Here you go.
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 1 year ago.

Look like warts.

Some what atypical.

Or musculosum.

Not typical fordyce.

I would take these to the doctors office.

Over the counter medicines will make them worse.

What could be the cause for these (warts)?
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 1 year ago.

Warts are caused by a virus.

You can pick them up in the environement and from skin to skin contact with others.

Why some people get them and others not, is not clear
