Chances are more that these kind of bumps are due to warts rather than molluscum. Warts are tumours or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV).They are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person.
Molluscum contagiosum presents as multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug and hence it is less likely to be due to molluscum. I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Apple cider has caused superficial skin burns which should heal with time with application of Neosporin.
I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thanks for the reply, I've been devastated over this for awhile and things only seem to get worse on top of the complications I have caused. Here is an update.
I have been to 3 different clinics where I am told that they are only sebaceous glands. I know they are not sebaceous glands as they are now rapidly spreading on my abdomen as well. I thought this was typical of molluscum? At this point I hope so, because hpv is even more worrying. I am thinking about returning to the sex clinic but I just don't seem to be getting any help anywhere. Not to mention it must be hard to diagnose these lesions that I have damaged with the apple cider. I feel helpless, which leads me to try self treating which I know is not a good idea.
Other complications have happened since my original post. I got a urinary tract infection and was prescribed antibiotics. Can apple cider vinegar cause this? I had also used Tea tea oil I'm not sure which lead to the infection.
- I was also prescribed fucidin cream but I'm not sure exactly what it is for? The burns or the lesions? Should I be worried about spreading the virus as I am applying the cream?
So many complications and worries that I feel my mental health is in terrible shape right now.
Getting an appointment with a dermatologist is difficult...and I have not seen my family doctor as this is a very embarrassing problem and I fear she wont be any more help then the doctors I have already seen...but I guess at this point I have nothing to lose.
- One more question...is polysporin as effective as neosporin? Because neosporin is not available over the counter here.
Again, thanks for your input as you can tell I've developed severe anxiety over this and it really helps to receive some answers here.
Hey did anything come of this? I have had the exact same problem and now I have burnt my skin on my penis!?
Was hoping someone could share some more insight on this.
Hey sorry I've been unable to login for awhile.
Yes it was molluscum and the apple cidar vinegar did work but it burnt the skin pretty bad as I over did it.
A couple weeks later everything healed and went back to normal.
