Is this genital warts

I have had unprotected oral sex with a few women and recently I have seen a slightly reddish - light colored spot of about 5mm of diameter on the shaft of my penis, near the base. It was not raised at all. Cannot feel any difference to touch, only the colour change is there. (Looks like an old scar) I put vinegar on it and it turned white. Is this genital warts? Thank you in advance.

the best thing to do is to be seen and have it checked out.  odds are it isn't a wart but it will take a professional exam to know for sure.

vinegar is an acid and it's an inaccurate test for warts. using full strength vinegar on your skin can actually harm it so it's not something you want to do.
