SKIN TAGS?

So I went to the doctor last week and i showed her something that i found "down there". She right away said that it was a condyloma or "genital wart". . She swabbed it then sent it off for HPV testing. She was very adamant about it being genital warts and HPV. I got the results back and they were negative. The nurse told me that it's probably "skin tags". I was relieved but upset because they had me sooo worried the last few days and now they are like "Oh, it's nothing". To me they don't look like skin tags, and why would skin tags grow inside the vagina. I am waiting to go back in 3 weeks to get a biopsy..... Any input? It's growing in lines with several bumps in each line.  I would say they measure up to 3 mm.....

Hello,
These skin colored swellings can be due to an ingrown hair (less likely), cyst, lipoma (fatty deposits) ,fibroma (fibrous tissue deposits) or viral warts (ruled out by swab test).

An examination by a gynecologist will be the best as it is only after an examination that it will become clear what the swelling that you have noticed is due to. A biopsy skin is the best test to confirm the diagnosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
