Hi. I have for about 6-7 month this problem... some bumps or warts around the Vagina and bottom... I thought it’s just some normal bumps but in time it just appeared more than usual

I don’t feel anything like itchy or something else
Expert:  Dr. Ben replied 7 days ago.

Thank you.

I am suspecting this is Molluscum Contagiosum (a common, harmless cause of wart-like spots on the skin that resolves naturally over the course of a few months).

I should be able to confirm if you can send me a sharply focused close-up photo of one of the spots.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Ok.. but as I said I have this for 6-7 months and now more appeals
Expert:  Dr. Ben replied 7 days ago.

Yes, this is entirely consistent with Molluscum Contagiousum. It will resolve naturally given time (typically between 6-18 months).

It is not a STD per se, but can be transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact. It also would be advisable to screen for STDs at your local sexual health clinic - they may offer to treat the spots with cryotherapy if they are bothering you too.
