Continue: This shows it is working. Use a tiny amount. I tell people to make a pin-prick in the packet and make it last a few applications. If the reaction is too violent, use less frequently. 3 times a week, sometimes less, is usual dose.

Need to examine: A non-healing ulcer is a cause for concern. It may be a venous stasis ulcer, seborrhic keratosis, or less likely a skin carcinoma. It would be prudent to see a doctor and if need be, have it excised and tissue examined by a pathologist.

Skin Tags: This extra skin is not, in reality, a wart caused by hpv-the wart virus. But, it is extra skin caused by friction of clothing, skin or jewelry. Many of us in the primary care setting freeze these with liquid nitrogen as a simple way to shrink or remove them.

It sounds like it: Could be a stye or hordeolum. You can try applying warm compresses to the area a few times/day and if it is not improving or if it is enlarging, you should have your doctor take a look.

This sounds: Like hemorrhoids, either internal and/or external and does not sound like genital warts at all. Caffeine causes the itching and makes you constipated, having to push and thus hemorrhoid symptoms. Eliminate all caffeine and alcohol and drink 80-100 oz fluids per day. See a colorectal surgeon if this does not resolve.

Genital skin rash: There are many causes of genital area rash. Most are not STDs. Some are problems that occur primarily in the genital area, and others can occur anywhere and happen to involve the genital area. Since your doctor apparently doesn't know, see a dermatologist. You can also google "genital skin rash images" for photos to compare with your rash. A "smooth" patch might be lichen planus.
