Hi everyone. I am new here and this is my first post. Hope you guys can answer my question. For awhile I was noticing some weird bumps in my public region and a few on the shaft of my penis. Just recently getting nervous that I had contracted some form of "non-painful/non-itching herpes" I made a doctor appointment. Found out I have molluscum contagiosum. Anyway, I am curious if I itch or scratch down there and then touch my face can it spread to my face?

Also, at the doctor's office he used a tool to scrape a few of them off (painful!!). He then told me to apply retin-a and they should go away in time. I found this easy because I had a few sample tubes of it from awhile ago. Has anyone else found a good method for getting these 20 or so small white bumps to disappear?
