This is Dr. Daivd

are they painful?

if not painful, those look like molloscum contagiosum warts on your back which is spread by a virus and can be very contagious but not dangerous

if it is painful, it could be early signs of shingles outbreak.

but looks more likely to be molloscum contagiosum

let me know if you have other questions.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

molloscum is also called water warts

some of those warts look like they can be popped and fluid could come out of them.

that is where the fluid is, inside of some of the warts.

this molloscum rash can take 6-12 weeks to go away

they are spread by a virus, but they are not permanent viral infections in your body. you can clear them out of your system.

this is not a dangerous rash.

it doesn't look like it will turn into shingles.

let me know if you have other questions.
