My advice is just leave it alone--don't touch and don't even look at it. This all increases your anxiety. You will damage the skin if you keep picking at it. And then see your Dr. and do whatever he tells you. No one can tell if it is genital warts by a posting on the internet. There are lots of benign skin problems and even if it is HPV it will clear with time, generally in 6 months to a years.
Meant year and not years! Generally it will clear in 6 months to a year if it is HPV!!
Thank u holly. I'm just nervous and want to know what it is. I don't think it's a wart because it doesn't resemble one. It kind of looks like a gland forming idk. Thanks again!
Don't do anything until you hear your doctor's opinion. If it is HPV, ask him about a herpes cream called ZOVIRAX. I used it several years ago and my genital warts were permanently cured. I know that ZOVIRAX wasn't supposed to work because it is a herpes treatment not a warts treatment but somehow it worked. It doesn't hurt to try, I guess. Anyway, good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
Zovirax is a treatment for herpes and not HPV. You have just as good a chance at clearing HPV by doing nothing and letting your immune system clear as Zovirax. I am presuming that may have happened with the above person. We live in a society that wants a quick fix and wants drugs to work and that does not always happen. HPV will clear with time. GW can clear after simply a one occurance or up to usually not longer than a length of time of 2 years. And it can hurt to try other drugs as all drugs can have interactions. As I said just see your Dr.
I'm perfectly aware that ZOVIRAX is a herpes treatment, I mentioned it on my post. Nevertheless, it may also treat genital warts: I know for sure because I tried it and it worked in just a few days. Over the years, I've shared this information with other patients who also had excellent results.
I'm not a doctor but I'm sure it's not uncommon that one drug can treat several conditions (e.g. tadalafil is used to treat ED and pulmonary arterial hypertension). Moreover, ZOVIRAX is a perfectly safe topical cream - if you do have warts, it doesn't hurt to try. You should, however, always consult your doctor before you try this or any other treatment.
Here's an article I mentioned earlier on ZOVIRAX and genital warts:
Thank you for your advice. If it is gw I will mention that to my DR. May I ask you what are the symptoms of GW? Is there discharge burning itchin? Mine dosent Itch it's not red it's just a white tiny bump. I did the vinegar test I know it's not realible but it didn't turn white. I mean it's already white it dosent look like cauliflower I looked thru a magnify glass. It kinda looks like the rest if the white bumps I have on my penis. Which btw our normal and I had them prior to being sexually active. Any insight you could provide may help my nerves. I don't believe it's gw bc I had my dermatologist look at my penis for any thing out the norm and she didnt say anything so Im thinking it's nothing.
Yes, it's probably nothing but you should have it checked anyway. In my case, it started as a small white pimp on the shaft but it multiplied rapidly.
i think you are just too paranoid. If you have HPV for the very first time, most likely the warts would spread rapidly and it's very unlikely you have only one single bump. If it's a recurrence, ofcourse it's possible to have 1-2 small warts considering your antibody has been able to fight the virus already.
Also you mentioned it yourself that your dermatologist said it's nothing. I would believe this dermatologist's opinion if i were you.
Thank u for ur advice. When I said I had my dermatologist look I meant she looked at my penis in general but I didnt point out that particular spot to her. But I went to my dr this morning bc I was freaking out and it isn't a wart. She said that it's a cyst of dead skin and there isn't any fluid in it so me trying to pop it wont do anything. She told me the name of what it's called but I dont remember it. Thank u every1 for ur help. I'm so thankful it's nothing serious.
My first two wart outbreaks were single warts.
