I have only become sexually active as of January. On the first, I had unprotected oral sex with someone who I know (although not very well) who said he is clean. On the night of the 12/13th, I had vaginal and oral sex with someone who I had just met, with a condom.
Approximately 30 hours later, I noticed bumps forming on my labia and under my tongue. There were two types of bumps on my labia, small white circles that look like fordyce spots, and some yellowish flat bumps along the labia, where there was friction. They didn't hurt, itch, or bleed. It was just chance that I noticed them. Under my tongue, there were some red balls and small, rectangular white bumps. Those ended up hurting a lot, and I couldn't eat properly for nearly a week because food, water, brushing, and movement made them hurt.
I made an appointment with my GP and was tested for all STDs during the period of the 22nd to 25th. During this time, I developed some cold symptoms, and eventually had a sore throat and a nasty ear infection. On the 22nd, my GP said that the bumps on my labia did not look like warts, and later all of my tests came back negative (herpes, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, etc). On the 25th I was prescribed antibiotics for my ear infection. I wondered if I didn't have thrush in my mouth (my doctor didn't do a swab until the 25th, when the mouth sores were gone), so I did some research and ate probiotic yogurt and had some garlic pills on the 24th; the mouth sores went away within hours.
As of yesterday, I noticed what appear to be some new growths near my vaginal opening. They are different than the other ones. These are sort of like little stalks going across the skin. These are only on the very back section of the skin near the opening. There also seems to be more texture leading out from this area to the yellowish bumps.
I am scheduled to see the actual gynecologist on Tuesday, but I am so distressed that I am going to see about moving the date up. I have done some internet research, and it would seem that it is extremely unlikely that I could have developed genital warts so quickly. Prior to these two events in January, I had only ever kissed someone years before, so it's not possible to have contracted them earlier than this. However, based on how they look I can't think of anything else that they could be. I know that this sort of thing can't be diagnosed over the internet, but what's the over-under on this and what else could it be?
I wasn't worried for a few weeks because I read that they usually don't show up for at least a few weeks. But they have gotten noticeably worse the last couple days and now there is some really strange, thick, yellowish discharge. None of these things have ever happened before. And the new growths look a lot like some of the pictures that I've seen.
I certainly don't want it them to be genital warts, but what else could they be? I have been trying to find out what else could look like warts, but I haven't found much, which is making me really anxious.
All of the things that I've read about warts says they "usually" show up within x amount of time. But what about unusual cases? It sounds like it's not impossible.
If you think you have HPV, you might want to try Healthforce nutritionals (Zeolite, 15g a day for my case) and Thuja cream (I uses SUNSPIRIT brand). Thuja occidentalis is a famous herbal for HPV
I am also currently using Homeopathic 30c Thuja (Nelsons)
You can also try a combination of Peppermint + Tea Tree oil (5ml each of the essential oils, mix and top up to 50ml) Use a sprayer. Each time you want to spray, mix thoroughly first as high percentage of TTO/PO can irritate skin, especially sensitve areas. Tea Tree oil will highlight abnormal skin areas (it happend to me). It flaked off only the abnormal skin cells selectively, and after a few applications (2nd or 3rd dose) the skin areas no longer respond to the TTO/PO.
Please note the 5ml each of TTO/PO is based on my reading at Medline, where there have been a study which showed that 5% TTO could kill abnormal cancerous skin cells. (cant find the link yet)
My (suspected) precancerous lesions eventually disappeared.
I forgot, those who never tried 5% TTO//PO combination should perhaps try 2.5% first, especially for sensitve areas.. because it is quite strong for 5% in my opinion. And make sure to mix thoroughly before spraying/applying, as if it is not mixed, one might accidentally be using the top layer which have the actual essential oil unmixed, and it would be very unpleasant
The article about TTO uses 10% solution so thats why 5 ml TTO top up to 50 ml with water.
I should say, there was once i coukd testify TTO/PO combination work differently when applied topically or internally taken
TTO is said to be toxic taken internally and this should be taken seriuosly
I accidentally took it into circulation i guess because there was once when i sprayed my hair with such solution after bath and after abt 15mins, i felt tingling sensation at the problem area it is really revealing (of course the scalp felt some sensation due to TTO/PO there). The reason it went into circulation is because (i discovered later after reading publication)there is an article which i read stating that scalp follicle has a lot of blood supply and can transport certain percentage of topically applied solution into circulation
This could mean that TTO could detect precancerous cells and home in on it i think, at least that what happened i believe
I read a few posts that ACV does help highlight precancerous cells.. warts? am not sure.. perhaps.. but I think HPV lesions can be tricky.. ie they sometimes do not really show obvious sign of abnormality.. there was one article which I read (cant find link at the moment) where the patient's skin looks justlike normal blemish (like regular sunburn) but in fact, when the doc analysed it, its actually HPV lesion - no one would suspect it to be HPV lesion unless it was seen under microscope and stained with HPV specific proteins antibody
I should mention that people must be aware of how HPV caused warts to form. Warts are considered benign tumour -- abnormal cells that have gone awry and thus the growth is not something of normal to the skin. Before warts form, or the benign tumour form, the virus needs to take hold of the cell (hijack). It will launch its scheme and causes the infected cells to serve the viral multiplication purpose, and the abnormal cells are usually detected by normal immune system; however, there could be a fight between your immune system and the viral multiplication. Sometimes they win (produce more viral particles), sometimes they loose (they might become dormant temporarily)... sometimes its in between perhaps. So, if it is on its way to make cancer of warts, that abnormal cells infected could be called as precancerous. This kind of abnormal cells are stealthy to the immune system, perhaps the virus have its own way of making decoy molecules to pretend the abnormal cells are in fact, normal. Some medications allow the selective destruction of such precancerous cells and spare the normal ones. So, not only that detecting warts are important, detecting those cells that have been infected are equally crucial for prevention of invasive infection or formation of tumours, be it benign or aggressive one
Well, I went to the doctors a few weeks ago and explained the situation to him. He took a look and thought that it could be a really bad case of yeast infection, but if it didn't go away with medication then it was a case of genital warts. He gave me some powerful antibiotics/anti-fungals for five consecutive courses of ten days. I'm about halfway through now, and some of the stuff that didn't start developing until later has gone away, but the bad stuff that showed up the next day is still there and not really responding to treatment. So, it looks as though they are warts, even though they showed up the next day. Just my luck.
