Hey all,I think I may have Molluscum on my shoulder region,I did previously have molluscum in my genital region(originally it was caught as an std,or sti) I did see a dermatologist that I personally think may be an wrong,but unfortunately he is the only one on the island i live on,he told me what i have is acne scars(these "scars" are slightly raised and appeared pretty much at once where there previously was no acne,unless somehow i just didn't notice,which is doubtful,but in the realm of possibilities) I mean,it is possible that this could just be a form of acne that i did not have previously,and coincidentally may have appeared around the same time.I did a google search and looked at images,some of them look the same as the pictures,while others not at all,to be honest they don't look exactly the same as what i had on my genital region.but anyways I've attached a few pictures of my shoulders and would like opinions especially if you are a doctor,but any opinions would be great.

  • possibly i am wrong...I'm not sure,the spots pretty much appeared all at once,shortly after i was diagnosed with molluscum,i got rid of it in my genital region by picking out the waxy centers with a sterilized needle.I do see a small indent in some of them,can't see it in all,but possibly these are just hair follicles?or maybe i just can't see themas it is somewhat an awkward position to even look at them.I tried picking the center out on one of these spots,and could not,possibly because it was an awkward position , or possibly(hopefully) that I'm wrong.I've had these spots on my shoulders for roughly 8 months
