Bumps on genitals: Genital warts appear as raised areas on the genitals which can be flat, bunny or uneven and skin colored or darker than the normal skin. If you think you have warts see a:doctor for proper treatment and to rule out other sexually transmitted diseases.

Skin : A dermatologist would be able to diagnose and treat the genital warts. Clinically warts often appear as flesh colored firm bumps with a tendency to multiply.

Nothing: Nothing to do unless a wart appears. Genital warts are common.. They are not dangerous, but are contagious. Having sex with a person who has warts may result in infection. Most of the time, it does not. There is nothing to do unless a wart or warts appear. They can be easily treated by coagulation or freezing. With no warts and no symptoms, there is nothing to do.
