Conditions with symptom: 'lumps on genitals'
can warts on your hand/fingers be transfered to your genitals or to another persons genitals?
No, because that is the different type of a HPV virus.
I think me and my boyfriend had what's referred to as 'dry sex'. He lay on top of me and then I lay on top of him, close to our genitals. Then we sat with our legs between each others so aain our genitals were close. I was ovulating at the time. However he always kept his boxers on with sim shorts over the top and I always had a pair of bikini bottoms on. Could I be pregnant?
No. There is no possible way you could be pregnant if he didn't produce any sperm :) You're in the clear! :)
I am 14 year old guy and i shave my genitals weekly, however doing this has given me spots, How can i keep shaving my genitals without getting spots ?
The spots are just irritation from the blade. Usually having damp skin, such as after a shower can help stop this. Also some balms Such as Nivea after shaving balm is useful cos this is what i use. Just don't put too much on or it will not sink in and it just leaves a mess....
My wee boy has had molluscum for almost 2 years. It is entirely confined to his genitals and constantly flared up to huge inflamed abcess like infections. He is only 4 so squeezing is out of the question. I dont want to create a stigma around his genitals for starting school either. Ive tried, Aloe vera, tea tree, fucidin ointment, silver spray and betamethasone cream. Help?
Hello yes we ordered zymaderm from off the internet, my 3 sons all had it and my youngest being 3 couldn't squeeze. Anyway it was only about £20 and it was brilliant you had to put it on everyday but keep up with it as you could see them shrink to nothing. Every thing will be back to normally and your boy will be happy!
I was wondering If a plantar wart can be spread from the bottom of the foot to the genitals or to in and around the mouth? If so, do you then get the same type of wart on the genitals or in and around the mouth? Treatable in the same way? Thanks
Hi, Just completed a self check, I am 20 years old and have discovered multiple lumps within my breast, my mothers side has a history of cysts, but they arent painful and range from small pebble like lumps to ping pong sized ones, with one feeling like its two in one. last scan i had was when i was 17 and the doctor sent me for an ultrasound, they came up as benign lumps, there was only one then, now theres 6 - 8 lumps. is it worth seeing my gp over?
I would say it's definitely worth a visit to your gp. Even just to put your mind at rest.
Hi, I'm 25 and I noticed a few tiny raised goose pimple type bumps in the pubic area of my genitals, there was also 2 or 3 red bumps which the lady at the sexual health clinic said were molluscum. She treated them by freezing the area and told me to come back if it didn't clear up. After a few days the red bumps dried up and disappeared but the skin coloured goose bump sized lumps remained. That was around 6 weeks ago and since then I have noticed the same skin coloured bumps appear on my arms chest and neck, but there is never any red lumps that resemble the pictures of molluscum I have seen. I went back to the sex clinic and she laughed at me and told me it was just the pigment of my skin but I disagree, how can it be spreading if it's just the pigment in my skin?? So I guess what I want to know is, is it possible that this is a mild form of molluscum that isn't managing to break out into red spots, is it molluscum in it's early stage, or is it something completely ddifferent? If you could offer me any clarity I would really appreciate it as this causing me quite alot of distress. Jon
Hi, ever since i remember I have had like goose bump things on my arms and legs.. my hair is really fine and i think my hair cant push through the skin so it just stays under the skin in these lumps.. its really embarrasing and i try and exfoliate and moisturise everyday but i still have really rough skin.. can anyone please help me?!
I have the same symptoms, my STD clinic suggests its Molluscum, nothing bigger than goosebumps and spreading.. it goes on its own I hear.

Don't worry about them, They are what some people call breast buds it just means your breasts are growing. If they become sore and tender all the time see your doctor :)
