  • Could be celluitis. My sister got it alot, then I suddenly got it. They say it isnt contagious, but I dont believe that because everyone has gotten it since my sister did. Hers are usually huge round spots, only one at a time. Mine were bumps filled with puss that would get hard, go away, then tons more would come back. Celluitis effects everyone differently. Good luck!

  • Sounds like herpes actually. If you touch the sores and touch another part of your body, it will just spread the virus. The same is true of any kind of skin infection really. Also consider the possibility of parasites, like mites or begbugs or even the shampoo or clothing you use and wear.

  • im thinking it isnt herpes because that can be contagious when very close to someone and having sexual relations with someone and im with my partner alot being very close etc and nothing like this has appeared on them ...... the first post sounds somewhat correct but i really dont know .... but maybe it is some kind of mite or bug thing going on its just irritating because it looks horrible im ashamed to be naked in front of my partner because its so bad:(

  • Are the bumps painful? If they are they could be boils. Boils have a harder ****y center and since they are caused by a virus (not by lack of hygine like is often stated) they can spread if you break them open.Good Luck and have a great visit inspite of the bumps!
