So I've had these non painful itchy bumps around my neck shoulder area for the last 2 weeks. It occured on the same spots were I have eczema. The area was dry and scaly. I did not apply my eczema cream yet and I went to several walk in clinics were they diagnosed the bumps as molluscum. They've managed to freeze some but not all as they weren't sure themselves.

The bumps that were frozen did go away and I went to see my family physician, she saw the rest of the other bumps didn't think it was molluscum and diagnosed it to be a fungi infection on my eczema instead. So she gave me lotriderm cream and my eczema eventually went away and some of the bumps got smaller.

But it did not completely go away. I even tried to pop one of the bumps, no white pus came out. So at this point what it could be, and I thought I ask in the meantime while waiting for my appointment with the derm, since it takes several months down here in Ontario =(

Some background information
- play contact sports
- allergic to peanuts, fish
- mild asthma
