Question by kiddo: just found out that my fella has molluscum contagiosum and he was told that it was a form of genital warts!!?
my fella spent some tome hitch hiking and living the american teen age boys dream a few yrs ago, when he came back, he had bumps all over his pubic area and what not. he went to the dr and was told that it was molluscum and bacterial and nothing to worrie about, the dr burned a few off and gave him a cream. i noticed a ” butm on his log” this morning and looked it up in my med. books. ( working on a MA assoc.) “uhh looks like warts to me.” he went to the ER right away and the Dr there told him that molluscum is a type of warts. we are getting married in a month and 5 days!! i always thought that if you had genital warts you always would have them. are we cursed to use rubbers for the rest of our lives?!?!
