Small red raised bumps around vagina/anus? Does this look like std or something else?

Edited , 3 users are following.

I noticed these small red raised bumps around my vagina/anus about two weeks ago. Theyre totally painless dont itch burn ooze etc I wouldnt know they were there if i hadnt felt them or seen them. I have had unprotected sex with two partners in the last year, neither of which have informed me of any std's. I dont have any other symptoms. Are these ingrown hairs or an STD?

    Hi louise,

    No question, these are molluscum contagiosum (Google), a viral STD. You can get more information from the DermnetNZ page. Treatment is widely available- ask the drugstore or pharmacist if they stock molluscum treatments (10% potassium hydroxide is popular); otherwise your GP/family doctor can prescribe imiquimod or podophyllotoxin.

    You and your partner should get checked for other STDs at some point.

    Rgds,

    Adhari

    Hey

    I think I have the similar spots,too. Not 100% sure,though. I've been told by two docs they're either molluscum contagiosum or sth else, but not hpv warts. However, I'm still worried because it's almost been a year I have these pumps, some of which went away on its own or with applying apple vinegar, or new ones popes up.

    Leave me a message if you have more info or need to see mine.

      They did not.. Both confirmed it's not hpv, which I was worried about. The former said it's MC, and recommended nothing or in case of inconvenience, cryotherapy.

      The latter referred me to visit a Dermatologist, that due to Covid19 I wasn't able to get an appointment.
