It started in 2015. Once sometimes twice a month I gets spots of raised white itchy bumps in random spots. They tend to stay for 8 days with me applying rubbing alcohol daily
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

Got that--thanks

Those look like molluscum contagiousa and they're caused by a virus like the one that causes warts on the fingers

They do tend to come and go on their own

I suggest you try over the counter Retinol cream for them and once they've cleared you should wash that area with Hibiclens three times a week

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
