I do not know if this has to do with HPV but I need an answer. I am currently in the Military and I can not go to the Doctor about this because it might get me kicked out of flying. Anyways, I have noticed some bright red/purple lines near my groin. At first I thought they were burses, but as time went by they did not go away. The lines are now starting to form the other side of my groin as well. the lines are not connected at all. My thoughts now are three things. First, they are stretch marks from weightlifting. Second, I have some kind of infection. Lastly, I do shave around those areas so they are infected ingrown hairs. My Girlfriend has HPV and we have had sex so I know I have it now but I read somewhere that men dont show signs of HPV. So in conclusion, I am freaking out and I have no idea what these lines are! HELP!
man i have the same problem noticed these red lines on both sides of the underside of my legs near groins also starting to see them where the skin folds where the pecs join the should muscles pretti worried about it as there fairly ugly did you ever find out what they were?
Alrite mate, I went to the doctors and he said they were nothing serious, just stretch marks. Either weight-gain or body is still growing. The dark red colour will fade and just leave a little white mark.
