A:   Hi.
Thank for your query and a picture.
This looks to be a classical condition called molluscum contagiosum.
This needs to be confirmed and if it is so the needling is the only way of cure and is best done by a Dermatologist.
There is no medical treatment for this. So do not apply anything to the area nor is any tablet necessary.
Do not fondle or pop as this is the way it spreads.
If at all some other thing your dermatologist will diagnose and treat it accordingly.
