    The photo is blurred, but this seems to be molluscum contagiosum, an infection caused by a virus. You might spread it further by shaving the area.

      Don't freak out, it's frequent and benign, but you should see a doctor. In the meantime, try to prevent the spread of the virus.

      Wash your hands. Keeping your hands clean can help prevent spreading the virus.

      Avoid touching the bumps. Shaving over the infected areas also can spread the virus.

      Don't share personal items. This includes clothing, towels, hairbrushes or other personal items. Refrain from borrowing these items from others as well.

      Avoid sexual contact. Since you probably have molluscum contagiosum on or near your genitals, don't have sex until the bumps are treated and have completely disappeared. Cover the bumps with clothing when around others, to prevent direct contact. When swimming, cover the bumps with a watertight bandage...

      It's not completely clear if the disease may be spread by simple contact with seemingly intact lesions or if the breaking of a lesion and the subsequent transferring of core material is necessary to spread the virus. Shaving and scratching can definitely spread it to other parts of the body (autoinoculation).

    Ive been trying hydrogen peroxide, benzyol peroxide cream and a sugar scrub. Theyve been getting a little smaller!
