Watch and wait: From what you described you may wish to watch and wait. If the symptoms do not improve in three weeks, it would require an examination to provide a meaningful opinion. You are still at an age where HPV vaccination is recommended. Have a healthy diet, exercise, drink plenty of water, have safe sex,. Wish you good health! Nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
