Hi, yesterday I had oral sex with a guy who I think may have had genital warts. I saw a couple of raised bumps on his scrotum and I didn't think anything of it at the time but I've just looked at some picture online and they look suspiciously similar.
I'm also questioning if they were just Sebaceous Cysts but I don't really know how to tell.
I want to know if (assuming it is genital warts) if there is anything I can do to prevent myself getting infected and how likely an infection is given that it was oral sex and I didn't come into contact with the lumps? I've had the HPV vaccination, will this help at all?
I also want to know what to do to avoid passing it on if I have been infected, for example would sharing glasses etc or kissing someone etc be a bad idea?
