I've had molluscum for a while but never more than 3 or 4 at a time. i've had one just above the baithing suit line for at least 4 months and it's the last one that hasn't gone away, except for one other tiny one. well a few days ago it was swollen, definitely bigger than it used to be and so i finally decided to take a needle and get out the core...but now i don't think i got the core out...i didn't get like a big ball i just got a little white stuff and then blood, and there was still a bump when i stopped. well i had it covered the first day and cleaned it with alcohol a few times since then but that's it, and it's been uncovered since the first day. now it's painful and red and it's like a scab and there's white on the side of it...i don't know if it's pus or maybe the core? do you think it's still "alive" or infected? is there anything i can do or will i have to get it checked out?
