Anal warts

Hi,
I had 3 warts around the anal 6 yrs ago and I have treated it. I did the HPV test and I was negative.  I have not had any warts again since then. Is there anything more I should do?

No.  Just have yourself examined down below from time to time, but you only need to treat the warts again if they come back.  I don't know what you mean by "the HPV test," but if you don't have any warts now, then it doesn't matter.

Best.

I still have a tiny skin tag in the same place since then, it does not bother me though. It does not have the same color of the wart. Do you think I should see a doctor for that?
