Scientists now think that the HPV infection that clears up on its own remains dormant in your body. it can stay dormant or it can come back again. So one can be suffering from genital wart without any symptoms and can be an active carrier. Genital warts can be confirmed by biopsy but Sometimes we can use an enhancing technique called acetowhitening. This technique involves the application of 5% acetic acid solution to the area of suspicion for about 5-10 minutes. Infected areas will turn white. Although it is not a reliable test but can be done at home. The specific test would be a biopsy of the small bump or a PAP smear. But biopsy is done usually if the diagnosis is uncertain. Hence get a PAP smear done initially.
