    It might be Molluscum contagiosum. You'll have to get it checked. Before you confirm it, you should try to prevent spreading the virus by wash your hands, avoiding touching the bumps, avoiding shaving over the infected areas, avoiding sharing personal items (clothing, towels, hairbrushes...) and avoiding sexual contact.

    Dear User17993,

    I agree with john- these could be molluscum contagiosum (MC).

    Examine the lumps carefully- do some of them appear with a dimple (slight depression) in the centre? If you can identify this feature, then it confirms the diagnosis. Unfortunately, you'll need to see your doctor for some treatment- either cryotherapy or some cream (imiquimod or podophyllotoxin). If you are absolutely confident of the diagnosis and you can't see your doctor, then ask your chemist (drugstore) if they stock "10% potassium hydroxide to treat molluscum".

    As MC is an STD, you and your partner/s should get screened for other sexual infections.

    And please stop shaving the area- you're likely to spread the infection!
