Depends: If it is getting better you may wait it out. If it is not gone in another 3-4 days it would be prudent to see a doctor. Try using an emollient like vaseline to help the skin heal. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
