Contagious? Yes. ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst?: This is probably a sebaceous cyst. Whatever the cause, if it isn't red, sore, or growing larger, probably it is harmless. But see a doctor if you remain concerned.

Probably normal: If they have been there "forever" and haven't changed, almost certainly it is nothing harmful and probably normal.

See in real life: Skin bumps can sometimes be diagnosed via video. A patient can try HealthTap PRIME for a virtual consult (there is a fee). Otherwise, one's primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine the bump. It could be a closed comedone, a plugged sebaceous gland or follicle, an unusual mole, or less likely a wart.

Need to be seen!: Best thing to do is to have it checked by a dermatologist. If the small bumps are dome shaped with a central dimple, it could be molluscum contagiosum. This is a skin rash caused by a viral infection that can spread by sexual contact. Early lesions on the genitalia may be mistaken for herpes or warts but, unlike herpes, these lesions are painless. Have it checked and diagnosed. Hope this helps. ...Read more
