I thought I had a small abrasion on my penis after sex with a tight fitting condom which irritated my skin. However after a few months this roundish red spot had not gone away.
I thought it might be some type of scar, but when I had my Dr. take a look he told me that it was HPV and prescribed aldara. I have not yet started the Aldara because I have read a lot of scary reports about sideeffects and other problems and as this is a family Dr. who treats mostly children I am going to get a second opinion.
However he did not state what strain of HPV this could be from. From reading, most visible warts do not come from the high risk strains 16 and 18, but then I've read that 16 can present some visible symptoms. Is there a possibility that this is a high risk strain and that I my partner may be at risk for cervical cancer?
