Do I have genital warts and Lichen Planus or something else?
About 2 months ago I had a an itchy dry patch on the shaft of my penis. I thought it was a fungal infection so I used lotramin and it has since helped. now there is a patch that is brownish in color and eliptical with a bit of a white ring... Is it lichen planus? see image link
about 2 weeks ago I noticed on the glans (glands) of my penis a shiny spot that is a bit raised and is flesh colored. it is not white and placing vinegar on it does not change the color. Since then I have had a number of these "spots" show up all over my glans (glands) and not on my shaft. I have read that the majority of genital warts are on the shaft (according to this forum). Do you think I have genial warts? They are not itchy. They are flesh colored and sometimes a bit more pinkish especially after friction. I am sexually active and practice safe sex, though I know that does not mean much with regards to HPV. I am really worried about this and am not sure if it is warts or allergic reaction to something... Any help would be appreciated.
