My wife recently started getting small bumps on her buttocks, stomach, and inner thighs. She went to her doctor who diagnosed it as molluscum contagiosum. She claims that her doctor told her that it could be caused by stress, but I'm not buying it. I could see where stress could affect your immune system and make you more susceptible, but I dont think stress can cause it. Stress doesnt cause viruses. I did some research on my own and learned that it can be spread by different things, but none of the risk factors (swimming, sharing towels or clothes, body massage, etc) really apply to her. I wonder if anyone knows how high the probability would be that she got it through sexual contact considering the fact that her bumps are confined to her stomach and groin area. I would think that if she came in contact with from something she handled, the bumps would have shown up on her hands or face first, but she doesnt have any there at all.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
