A member asked:

Warts on penis burned off over 5 years ago. reappear in the same spot, is it hpv or herpes

Very different...: Herpes and warts look totally different. Herpes bumps are usually painful ulcerations while warts are fleshy growths that are usually painless. Best wishes!

HPV: HPV is a family of viruses with the ability to hibernate in your body and reappear over time. The primary symptoms/warts can be burned/frozen or dissolved by acid but that only takes care of the visible HPV.You can also shed and spread the virus off and on whether you see lesions or not.
