Bumps can be many things often not a STD, but I guess you will have to see another Dr for a better exam.

you have to apply the immoquod as ordered for up to 3 months before it gets rid of warts, if it's going to be effective at all.  How long have you been using it?

no idea why they would treat you for warts if they didn't think they were warts.

at this point all you can do is to continue to be seen for your symptoms to try to get to the bottom of it all.
