If you have small, hard bumps that look like donuts on your skin, it’s a sign that you may have molluscum contagiosum. But only a nurse or doctor can tell you for sure.

What are the symptoms of molluscum contagiosum?

If you notice any abnormal skin irritation, rash, bumps, or blisters that don’t go away on their own after a few days, it’s best to have them checked out by a nurse or doctor.

A doctor can do an exam and diagnose molluscum contagiosum by looking at your skin.

Where can I get tested for molluscum contagiosum?

You can get a diagnosis for molluscum contagiosum (and other STDs) at your doctor’s office, a community health clinic, the health department, or your local Planned Parenthood health center.
