Hi doctor,

I have had molluscum on my pubic area and my doctor said that was cleared a month ago. Today, I found two small bumps, which are 1 mm or lesser than that. One is yellowish brown in color and another one is pink in color. It might have a hair coming out of the side, but I am not sure. I am attaching the photo. Could either of them be molluscum? Please explain me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

One of the lesions looks like milia, obstruction of sweat duct, which is very close differential of molluscum contagiosum (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

Another lesion just looks like pseudofolliculitis. Both of them have very less chance of spreading.

Do not worry about them. You can get the milia removed at any day.

Thank you doctor,

About the pink one, you said it looked like pseudofolliculitis. But, I do not shave my pubic area. So, is this possible? Please explain me.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, it is possible. Coarse hair can grow inward and give rise to pseudofolliculitis.
