Re: HPV to Molluscum
Did the original bump look more like MC or HPV? I thought they always looked really different. Maybe they can look more alike in earlier stages? I think the way you're describing how they're disintegrating sounds like MC and not at all like HPV.
You'll want to gently clean the fluid from the disintegrating things off yourself, because it may be able to cause them to appear elsewhere. (MC is contagious and spreads on one's own body.) And try to keep any fluid coming out of them from spreading or sitting on your skin all day.
I don't really know about this, but I would guess the red dots on the head of your penis are probably the sebaceous glands under the skin there (the normally invisible spots of Fordyce of the glans) indicating the irritation from the skin irritant treatment that your doctor used on the MC. (Your doctor could probably tell you if that's likely the case or not just over the phone.)
And I'm not a doctor to have a valid informed opinion or anything, but I think that that is the best treatment for MC. It's much better than just cutting them off, because the irritant is likely to make the immune system recognize the MC as the pathogen it is. If a doctor just cuts off the bump(s), the virus often remains latent in the body without the immune system recognizing it (for much longer).
