Perianal Warts?

I noticed these flesh-colored bumps several weeks ago in my perianal area only because I was seeing a little blood on the toilet paper.  

I did have warts over 7 years ago, but they were the typical white cauliflower type.  I had them cauterized by a surgeon twice in a short period of time and I haven't had a problem since...until now.  Although these don't look at all like what I had before, the red spots that are visible in the bumps make them look like warts to me.

I'm dreading having to go through a painful removal process again, but I want to prepare myself before I go to the doctor so I'm hoping you can tell me what you think they are.  Thanks in advance!

These look like small hemorrhoids, not warts.  If so, they don't need to be treated at all.  Please see a doctor in person to confirm this.

Best.

I am a 35 year old male.  My question is long and many but please help:

1) if I notice warts (small white bumps) on my perianal area MUST I treat them as I have read that if they do not bother you then no worries.  When I stretch the anal area I can see a couple on the inner side.

2) I also have a case of hemmorhoids as well that seem to be ever present but not life altering.  Will using an ointment (preperation H etc.)  to treat this cause the warts to spread?

3)  I tried to use Aldara for the perianal warts.  Does this irritate the hemmorhoidal tissue?  It makes a very uncomfortable situation.

4)  I also seemed to have a minor case of fecal leakage.  Ever since my dermatologist froze off a case of perianal warts I seemed to notice this new problem!!!!!

What do I do and who would I see at this point.  I looked for a proctologist but can only find gastreontolgistss (spelling???)HELP!!

What is VERY distrurbing is I am s straight male and do not understand why I get these in my perianal area????

DOES ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCE THIS?????
