Is this HPV?

Hello guys, I am very concerned. I noticed some warts on the skin near the genital area and had to ask if this is a sign of HPV.

Could be but maybe not. GWs are so difficult to identify by a pic. Looks like it could or isn't. You're in the situation where only a qualified professional can tell you. If go with a dermatologist, but your primary care provider or a planned parenthood nurse will suffice. They'll want to visually diagnose only so if you absolutely positively have to know, you'll have to insist on a biopsy.
