Ive had these two tiny red like things near the skinfold of my penis (circumsized) for a while now (4-6 months) and it hasnt gone away. I thought it was warts so I went to my doc but he didnt think so. I then went to a dermatologist and he didnt completely think so but still administered Podofolix medicine to me to apply for the 3 days, twice a day, during a week treatment. I did that for the first week and the red bump has swelled into a larger bump now and its scaring me. Its also said that if you use this medicine, and swelling occurs, stop using it immediately. Its not massive swelling by any means but the bump has defintiely been raised. I'm going to make another appt w/ the dermatologist tomorrow but is there something that I should ask for, a test of some sort that will tell me if this is or not a wart? There are other points within the skin fold that show resemblance of when this issue started long time ago but they are not connected. Someone please help as I dont know what to do anymore. Thanks.
if you put white vinegar on them & they turn white, they're more likely to be warts. it's not a 100% accurate test because other types of bumps may turn white as well. but if it doesn't turn white, then it's for sure NOT warts.
I put white vinegar on a small mark on my lower genitial. I was thinking it might be a genital wart, but over the past couple of days of stressing the vinegar has never turned white? Can you see it with the visible eye?
