Hi, Great... thank you very much.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 5 months ago.

Thank you for the excellent photos. These bumps appear to be cutaneous (exophytic) papillomas - single to multiple variably flesh-colored to pigmented, pedunculated, alopecic, smooth to fronded masses that usually measure less than 0.5 cm in diameter. Lesions mainly affect the feet, head, and eyelids. Papillomavirus antigen may be detected by immunohistochemistry or PCR (DNA-based) testing...which can be avoided because most papillomairus infections regress spontaneously after development of a host cell-mediated immune response.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish. I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.
